Cuba and Angola address deepening bilateral relations

Luanda, June 10 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Angola, Téte António, received today the ambassador of Cuba, Oscar León, with whom he discussed mechanisms to deepen relations between the two peoples, countries and governments.

Both parties took advantage of the occasion to review the exchange program that unites the two nations, mainly in the sectors of cooperation linked to political, diplomatic, commercial and cultural life, said a note from the Angolan Foreign Ministry.

During the audience, the Cuban diplomat alluded to the 40th edition of the Havana International Fair (Fihav), which will be held next November at the Expocuba fairgrounds, considered the largest fair in the Caribbean and one of the most representative of Latin America.

León said it can be an excellent opportunity for Angolan companies, since it is a multi-sector event, conducive to business meetings, seminars, conferences and investment forums.

Angola and Cuba maintain cooperative relations in various areas, where the health and education sectors stand out.

Exchanges remain at the highest level, as demonstrated by the visit in August last year of the president of the Caribbean nation, Miguel Díaz-Canel, to Luanda, on which occasion three new agreements were signed between the two countries.

Meanwhile, in September 2023, the Angolan president, João Lourenço, was in Havana, where he participated in the Summit of the Group of 77 plus China, organized by the island.

The two States established diplomatic relations on November 15, 1975, four days after the independence of Angola, and a year later they signed the General Cooperation Agreement, which gave rise to the Bilateral Commission.
