According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mirex), the Secretary of State for International Cooperation and Angolan Communities, Domingos Vieira Lopes, received last Thursday at the headquarters of the agency the ambassador Esther Armenteros.
The two officials analyzed the strengthening and deepening of the ties of friendship and cooperation, the Foreign Ministry said in a press release.
According to the source, the meeting served to take stock of the recent visit of the Minister of State and head of the Civil House of the President of the Republic, Adão de Almeida, to the Caribbean nation, from February 27 to March 3.
Vieira Lopes and Armenteros also discussed the current process of informal electoral registration of Angolans in the diaspora, with a view to the general elections in August.
The two governments signed in 1976 a General Bilateral Cooperation Agreement, which covers several sectors and has evolved over the years in the light of the international-historical context and the interests of both parties, the Mirex said.
Present at the hearing were the consultant to the Secretary of State for International Cooperation and Angolan Communities, Egna de Sousa, and the official Higino Ndilimondjo, from the Americas directorate of the Foreign Ministry.
