Valletta — The Angolan Foreign minister, Georges Chikoti, was invited Friday to visit the Republic of Malta with a view to re-launching cooperation between the two countries.
The invitation was addressed Friday by the vice prime minister and minister of Foreign Affairs of Malta, Tonio Borg, during an audience he granted to the Angolan ambassador to the archipelago, Florencio de Almeida, who presented Thursday his credentials to the president of Malta.
During the meeting, the parties discussed issues of common interest, with stress to bilateral cooperation which, according to the Angolan ambassador, needs being strengthened.
In order to strengthen the cooperation between the two countries, the ambassador stressed the need to work together from now on to revive the Bilateral Commission, dormant since 1984, with a view to re-launching cooperation in various fields between the two countries.
The relations between the countries dates back to 1984, following an official visit of the Angolan president, José Eduardo dos Santos, to that archipelago.
