Angola: Independence Enabled Realisation of People's Dreams - Diplomat

Cairo — The extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Angola to Egypt, António da Costa Fernandes, last Sunday in Cairo City said that the conquest of national independence enabled Angolans to materialise their dream for liberty.

According to the Angolan diplomat, who spoke to ANGOP, in the ambit of the commemorations of Angola's 37th independence anniversary, marked on November 11, the conquest of national independence has enabled the unity of the Angolan people, as well as brought about dignity and freedom to the nation.

"Independence united us from Cabinda to Cunene (north to south) so that we could keep on materialising a dream that is ours, inherited by our grandparents, which is the happiness of the people, and it gave us the freedom to speak", stressed the Angolan diplomat.

Angola and Egypt have a relationship dating back to 1976, year in which the Arab country opened its diplomatic office in Angola.

In the ambit of the celebrations of Angola's National Independence Day (November 11, 1975) the embassy in Egypt organised a series of activities to mark the date, with highlight on an exhibition on Angolan tourism places, a reception and a music show by the Angolan singer Selda.
