Angola: Ambassador to Poland Hails National Independence

Warsaw — The Angolan ambassador to Poland, Domingos Culolo, considered "4 April" as the definitive landmark to overcome the sad phase of its history by conquering the peace.

The diplomat said so when addressing the official reception held by the Angolan embassy to celebrate the 37th anniversary of the national independence, marked on November11.

"Angola, my country, managed to overcome this sad phase of its history, such as the conquest of the everlasting peace on 4 April in 2002", said the ambassador.

Addressing to about 300 guests, among ambassadors, Polish government representatives, business people and other personalities, Domingos Culolo stressed the need for boosting more and more the relation between Angola and Poland, recalling the destiny of the two countries that celebrated on the same day their independence.

During the two-hour ceremony, Domingos Culolo mentioned the change of Angola with the construction of new infrastructures, commitment to the consolidation and strengthening of democracy, national reconciliation and diversification of its economy.

The act ended with a cocktail at the sound of the African drum.
