The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, which became a member of the United Nations organisation on 12th November 1968, is continuing to achieve great success in parallel to its recent celebration of fifty years of independence.
With the period of the presidency of the Dominican Republic over at an end in January, the Permanent representative from that country before the greatest forum for global diplomacy, Francisco A. Cortorreal, handed over the gavel on the afternoon of 1st February to the Permanent Representative of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea before the United nations, Anatolio Ndong Mba, in the presence of other member States of the Council.
The symbolic act, held in the debating hall of the decision-making body, was attended by all the diplomatic staff from the Equatorial Guinea permanent mission, who did not want to miss this event that will go down in the history of both the United nations and our country.
Having mutually congratulated each other for the successes achieved by the Security Council, the ambassadors wished Equatorial Guinea luck, while reaffirming the huge capacity of our country with respect to the celebration of events of an international nature.
