Over two consecutive days, the member States of the United Nations that share the Portuguese language, celebrated the Day of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), with cultural activities and speeches inviting members to further commitment in order to spread the language, which has united peoples for centuries.
The commemorative events began on 3rd May at the United Nations headquarters, with the participation of members of the diplomatic missions from all countries within the Portuguese-speaking community before this organisation.
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, as a full member of this group since joining on 23rd July 2014, did not wish to miss this important date, with the presence of the Permanent Representative Anatolio Ndong Mba, and various members of our country’s permanent mission before the UN, as a sign of the commitment of the Government of Equatorial Guinea to promote Portuguese both nationally and internationally, according to the Ambassador, during the interview given to Portuguese media before the event.
The event was led by the President of the General Assembly, Miroslav Laj?ak, representing the General Secretary, Antonio Guterres. The president highlighted the values of the CPLP, and its enormous contribution to universal culture.
