Angola: Independence Brought Gains in Various Sectors

Luanda — In 37 years of independence Angola recorded considerable and important gains in the economic, political, diplomatic and cultural sectors, considered this Saturday here the minister of Geology and Mining, Francisco Queiroz.

Speaking to ANGOP on the ocassion of the 37 years of National Independence, to be commemorated on Sunday (November 11), Francisco Queiroz stressed in the political sector the national independence itself, the defence of the territorial integrity and the preservation of sovereignty.

In the diplomatic point of view, the official said Angola registered great progress, since he always considered diplomacy as an important tool for its affirmation, as a country, in the context of Nations.

"Our diplomacy elevated our country to a level of great respect not only in the continent, but also in the world in general. Angola is a country that serves as an example for countries that obtained their independence in terms of respect and affirmation", the minister stated.

He said that Angola implements its foreign policy based solely in the national interests and is not subject to the interests of other powers or countries.
