Luanda — The Angolan Executive reiterates the commitment of the state in recognizing the human rights as essential for the consolidation of peace.
This was said to Angop on Monday by the minister of Justice and Human Rights, Rui Mangueira, while addressing the main event of the 64th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, an act that took place in the headquarters of the National Assembly in Luanda.
According to Rui Mangueira, "the initiative of the President of the Republic, José Eduardo dos Santos, in assigning the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights to organize this event, shows the commitment of the Angolan state in recognizing that the human rights are essential for the consolidation of peace and rule of law state".
He said that this decision also shows how the universal declaration of human rights permitted many countries in the world to conquer auto determination.
The act was attended by the chief justice of the Supreme Court, Cristiano André, first deputy speaker of the National Assembly, João Lourenço, first lady, Ana Paula dos Santos, cabinet officials, MPs and members of the diplomatic body accredited in Angola.
