On the afternoon of Wednesday 19th April, the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, Mari-Cruz Evuna A�ndeme, met the Vice-secretary General of the Commonwealth, Josephine Ojiambo, accompanied by Koffi Sawyer, from the Political Affairs and Africa Division.
During the audience, Evuna A�ndeme told the organisation of the wish of the Government of Equatorial Guinea to belong to the group of Commonwealth nations.
For her part, Josephine Ojiambo reported on the conditions and processes necessary for the Equatoguinean Executive to carry out in order to join the organisation. Beginning in April 2017, various meetings will be held between the diplomatic mission and the headquarters of the commonwealth in London, with a view to preparing and organising subsequent visits from the Commonwealth to Equatorial Guinea.
The Commonwealth is an organisation made up of 53 independent countries that, with the exception of Mozambique and Rwanda, share historical ties with the United Kingdom. Queen Elizabeth II is the head of the organisation, which is administered by General Secretary based in London. Its main aim is international cooperation in the political, economic and cultural spheres.
