The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Domingo Mituy Edjang, met the ambassadors from Cuba, Egypt, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The Egyptian Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Tarek Khalil, was the first diplomat to meet the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, with whom he spoke about the state of cooperative relations between Equatorial Guinea and the country of the Nile, above all regarding the education, agriculture and health sectors. After the meeting, it was described as cordial by the ambassador.
With the representative from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Tong Chol Ho, the dialogue focussed on bilateral matters, and the support of Korea for the candidacy of Equatorial Guinea for the United Nations Security Council.
We focussed our conversations on the candidacy of Equatorial Guinea for the position of non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, while at the same time expressed the support of our country. We also looked at progress in relations between the two countries, specifically regarding the visit by delegations from the two countries”, said Tong Chol Ho.
The Cuban Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Rodobaldo RaA�l Isasa Herrera, was the final diplomat to meet the Secretary of State, at an appointment which permitted an analysis of the contents of multilateral cooperation.
I saw the level of knowledge possessed by the Secretary of State regarding matters of common interest and, in particular, we spoke about what we consider should be a significant victory for Equatorial Guinea, which aspires to being a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. For us it is an important issue, above all for countries in the south or non-aligned countries. Our country previously held this post, and we know first hand what it means to reach this level. We are conscious that Equatorial Guinea is developing an agenda of peace and solidarity”, declared Rodobaldo RaA�l.
