Minister for Foreign Affairs receives EU Ambassador

The European Union Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and SAPound o Tome and Principe bid farewell to authorities of the Government on Equatorial Guinea on Monday 1st July, after completing his mission.

After completing his four-year mission, Helmut Kulit was received by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Simeon Oyono Esono, at the headquarters of his ministerial department in Malabo II, to analyse the situation regarding relations between the EU and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, and the achievements of recent years and the challenges faced by this cooperation.

Malabo has received recognition from Brussels of the role played by Equatorial Guinea during its presidency of the United nations Security Council, and its role within the organisation as non-permanent member, above all in the resolution of conflicts and the actions of our country within the regional and subregional contexts. From this perspective it demonstrated the willingness of the EU to continue to collaborate with the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, above all in the current industrialisation phase of its national economy.

The conversations between Oyono Esono and Helmut Kulit focussed on the need for both sides to tale advantage of the common points inviting them in order to move towards diplomacy in which the spirit of understanding, dialogue and frank negotiation are the courses through which relations between Malabo and Brussels flow.

The minister wished the emissary, of German nationality, success in his future mission, while insisting that, in the future mission to be assigned, he would be in a the position of better understanding the true image of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
