The next meeting of leaders, as well as the previous meetings at the level of experts and ministers, will be held in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, from April 25 to 28, the Foreign Affairs Ministry (Mirex) said in Luanda, after a meeting between Minister Tete Antonio and GGC Executive Secretary Florentina Adenike Ukonga.

The two diplomats discussed details of the preparation of the event, which will analyze the current situation of the Commission and the progress of its action plan approved in November 2019, with a view to defining joint efforts for 2022, the Foreign Ministry explained.

The CGG resulted from a treaty signed in Libreville, the Republic of Gabon, by Angola, Congo, Gabon, Nigeria and Sao Tome and Principe, in order to establish a permanent institutional tool for cooperation between states bordering the Gulf of Guinea.

In defense of common interests, the mechanism focuses on socioeconomic development and the promotion of peace through talks and consultation, based on historic ties of friendship, solidarity and fraternity.

Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) joined the organization in 2008, which remains open to the accession of other countries from the area, with a view to transforming the sub-region into a zone of peace and security, the Mirex recalled.
