One of the first steps taken by the Equatoguinean diplomatic mission in Spain, led by Purificacion Angue Ondo, with respect to the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Independence in the country, was to publish information about Equatorial Guinea in the Diplomacy magazine. The content, apart from covering historical information, also deals with Equatorial Guinea today, its transformation thanks to the plan outlined by the leader of the country, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
In the same context, the Spanish diplomatic school organised, on 16th June, an exhibition dealing exclusively with the history of the country, the first to be organised by the school in relation to the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
The head of the Equatoguinean diplomatic mission in Spain began her speech during the opening ceremony with a short introduction on the discovery of the island of Bioko by Fernando Poo.
Angue Ondo explained the process of colonisation in Equatorial Guinea, the achievement of national sovereignty, and the change experienced by the country following the glorious freedom coup, Following the freedom coup, all the Equatoguineans who had had to leave the country during the first government through fear of death or unfair imprisonment returned to the country”.
The international achievements obtained by the country were also highlighted by the Equatoguinean diplomat, Equatorial Guinea has evolved in recent years towards having greater involvement in international relations, being now a member of the United Nations and the majority of its specialist organisations; in Africa the country belongs to the African Union, the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa, the Gulf of Guinea Commission, and the African Development Bank”.
