The President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, received in audience the Spanish Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Guillermo Antonio Lopez Mac-Lellan, on 28th February.
The meeting, which was attended by the Second Vice-President, Agustin Nze Nfumu, and the first spokesperson for the table, Atanasio Ela Ntugu, served for the President of the Upper Chamber and the Spanish diplomat to cover various matters related to the similarities of the bicameral systems in Spain and Equatorial Guinea.
The possibility of working on the recovery of archives and the historic memory of Equatorial Guinea which may be available in Spain, together with the search for records in Spain regarding the first deputies that were present during the colonial period, were also covered during the meeting.
The two figures also looked at the training of human resources, as the legal systems in Equatorial Guinea and Spain are similar, and share the same language and culture.
The conversation focussed on aspects of the current political situation in Spain, and the upcoming elections called by the Spanish Government for 28th April.
Finally they spoke about parliamentary diplomacy and the seeking of mechanisms to promote and facilitate exchanges of experience between the parliaments of Equatorial Guinea and Spain, in addition to the normalisation of the process of the issue of visas by the Spanish Embassy in Malabo.
