On 7th March, the Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, received ambassadors from the Federal Republic of Brazil, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, at the People’s Palace in Malabo. The Head of State also held a meeting with the United States Ambassador, Julie Furuta Toy.
In his meeting with Julie Furuta Toy, the North American Ambassador, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo reviewed the bilateral relations uniting the United States of America and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, and also covered current issues from the UN Security Council, of which our country has been a non-permanent member since the beginning of the year.
Furuta Toy used the audience to report to the Equatoguinean leader on the idea from the United States Government of running a television campaign against human trafficking.
After that, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo received the Brazilian diplomat, Evaldo Freire, who bore a manifesto of rejection against the frustrated mercenary invasion attempt in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. This manifesto came from the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), made up of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, SAPound o Tome and Principe, Portugal, East Timor and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
During the meeting with the Brazilian Ambassador, the two figures mentioned updating the framework of cooperation between the South American country and Equatorial Guinea, and also covered other matters of common interest, such as the imminent arrival in Malabo of a senior Brazilian delegation to look at matters of civil defence cooperation.
Evaldo Freire passed on to the President the invitation from his Government to attend the World Water Forum, which is to take place in the city of Brasilia throughout this March.
Finally, the Equatoguinean leader met the Extraordinary Plenipotentiary Ambassador from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Tong Chol Ho.
The meeting served to strengthen relations between the two peoples and governments. The Korean diplomat declared the willingness of his nation to express solidarity with Equatorial Guinea regarding the frustrated mercenary operation last December.
The Head of State was accompanied in these meetings by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Simeon Oyono Esono.
