Foreign Minister condemns treatment of Vice-President by Brazilian Government

In an audience held on Monday 17th September at the ministerial headquarters of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation between Simeon Oyono Esono Angue and the Brazilian Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Evaldo Freire, the minister passed on the discomfort of the Government regarding the treatment given by the Government of Brazil to the Vice-President of the Republic, Charged with Defence and State Security, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, during his recent trip to the South American country.

During the meeting, the two figures exchanged impressions regarding the current state of diplomatic and bilateral relations between Malabo and Brasilia. Oyono Esono Angue reiterated the need for both parties to work towards improving the relations, leaving aside behaviour which could disturb the good health enjoyed by the ties of friendship between the two States, peoples and governments, if it is taken into account that Equatorial Guinea and Brazil are full members of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP).

For his part, the Brazilian diplomat stated his willingness to continue to work so that certain behaviour from people is not repeated or damages the current climate of cooperation which happily exists between the respective governments and people.
