A senior delegation from the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, led by the President, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, made a short trip to the Republic of Angola. This is the first foreign visit by the Head of State since completing his tour of the entire national territory. The trip to Angola served to strengthen political trust, and boost cooperation between the two member nations of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP).
At Bata airport, the Equatoguinean President was seen off, and also received, by the First Vice Prime Minister of the Government, Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguene, the President of the Chamber of Deputies, Gaudencio Mohaba Mesu, the vice-president of the same institution, Santiago Nsobeya Efuman, the Governor of the Province of Litoral, Bartolome Owono Nze, and various advisers to the Presidency of the Government.
“We maintain relations of cooperation with Angola, and on discovering that there was a congress in which there will be a transition, we went in order to request a strengthening of cooperation, as we have agreements in place that have not been implemented and we want, when the transition arrives, recognition of the agreements signed between Angola and Equatorial Guinea, when there is a new government, and other consultations regarding African continent and international politics”, declared H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo before the press, minutes after his arrival.
