Angola: Cuba Congratulates Parliament Speaker On His Election

Luanda — The Government of Cuba has congratulated the Speaker of National Assembly, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, on his election to the post, he holds since the second half of October this year.

The congratulatory message was conveyed Friday in Luanda by the Cuban ambassador to Angola, Gisela Garcia Rivera, during an audience granted to her by the Parliament leader.

According to the Cuban diplomat, the meeting aimed at analysing bilateral relation.

Gisela Rivera said that the two interlocutors discussed the strengthening of parliamentary cooperation, which had been discussed during the visit to Angola of the Speaker of National Assembly of People's Power of Republic of Cuba, Ricardo Alarcon de Quesada, in June this year.

The projects being implemented in Angola by Cuba in various fields, with stress to the health, education, literacy and construction, were also part of the audience that gathered the Parliament Speaker and Cuban ambassador.

The Angolan Speaker Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos was also briefed on current difficult situation in Santiago (Cuba), following the storm that recently hit the region, she said.
