Angola: Serbia Might Help Rehabilitate Air Force Base

Lubango — The Serbian Aviation and Air Defence commander, gen. Ranko Zivak, said Wednesday in Lubango, southern Huila province that his country wants to assist in the rehabilitation of the Air Force Base that Serbia, as part of the ex-Yugoslavia, helped to create some 30 years ago.

Speaking to the press at the end of a few hours visit to Huila province, the officer said his delegation included experts with the skill to analyse and design and he was sure there was room for his country to help Angola.

To him, this would be the continuation of the activities conducted by the company, Plano, an AngoPlano partner operating in the Angolan market for more than 30 years.

According the source, it is high time for rehabilitation and modernisation of infrastructures built by his country 30 years ago, such as the Huila province Air Force Base.

The Serbian general is part of the delegation led by the visiting Serbian Defence minister, Dragan Sutanovac, who is in Angola since Tuesday.

The Huila Air Force Base is the second largest in the country, after that of Luanda.
