The Vice-President of the Republic, Head of Defence and State Security, travelled to Sierra Leone on 22nd November on behalf of President S.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who received a missive from his counterpart, S.E. Julius Maada Bio.
The Vice-President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Simeon Oyono, travelled to Freetown (Sierra Leone) with the aim of actuating some agreements that the two countries are planning to implement in the aviation sector, and to inject new energy into the bonds of friendship and bilateral cooperation.
The courtesy visit comes months after President S.E. Obiang received his counterpart, Maama Bio in Mongomeyen, where he expressed his desire to strengthen the links of friendship and brotherhood between the two nations and governments, in the sense that Equatorial Guinea assists and passes on its experience to Sierra Leone in the hydrocarbon sector.
Such desire became a reality earlier this year on 19th September with a collaboration agreement signed in the Sierra Leone capital concerning hydrocarbon exploration. In addition to giving Sierra Leone the go ahead to become an exporting nation of petroleum, this agreement also allowed mutual exchange visits between senior managers and dignitaries of the two nations.
