Angola: Ambassador to South Africa Comments Relations

Pretoria — The Angola's ambassador to South Africa, Josefina Pitra Diakite, called on the Angolans resident in this country to play a more active and catalysing role in the process of strengthening the commercial and friendship relations between the two countries, as well as to be more humble and comply with the local laws, Angop has learnt.

The diplomat said so in Pretoria, under the commemorations of the 37th anniversary of country's independence, marked on November 11.

She praised the Angolans that have chosen South Africa as their second motherland, achieved success and have been contributing positively to the fight against unemployment and poverty in this country, generating jobs for the local citizens.

The Ambassador deemed as very positive the relations and said that since 1994, both countries signed 27 tools, such as memo and accords, in various domains, including suppression of visas in diplomatic and service passports, as well as it was created a bilateral commission for consultations.
