Angola: Country Re-Elected Unesco Portuguese Group Co-Ordinator

Luanda — Angola has been re-elected to co-ordinate the Portuguese Speaking Community (CPLP) member countries group at UNESCO, for a two-year mandate, ANGOP has learnt.

A press note from the Angolan permanent office to UNESCO states that Angola was re-elected on Wednesday during a meeting of ambassadors with CPLP countries, under a proposal by Portugal's representative Ramalho Ortigao.

The proposal of the Portuguese diplomat was based in the good performance of Angola's ambassador-delegate, Almerindo Jaka Jamba.

"The participation of Angola in the Portuguese community took place under a very visible programme taking for the first time the commemoration of the Portuguese Language Day, with a great participation of member states", explained the ambassador.
