On 25th January, the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca, met the Portuguese Ambassador before the European Union, Nuno Brito, to report on the “attack and terrorist invasion”, as he described it, which took place in Equatorial Guinea.
Both nations are members of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), and Portugal is also a benchmark country within the European Community, and thus our ambassador wanted to report first-hand on the events.
Nvono-Nca reiterated the need for the EU to express solidarity with Equatorial Guinea following this serious event, as “with respect to our country, it has always aligned with any nation being threatened or attacked by terrorists”.
The Portuguese ambassador, for his part, affirmed that they would not consider supporting any change or attempted change which goes against democratic processes, “Portugal is always going to respect the results of ballots and never force”.
