Kiev — Angola's ambassador to Ukraine, Joaquim Augusto de Lemos, on Friday thanked this European country for its support in the training of young Angolans.
The Angolan diplomat said so whilst speaking at the tradition meeting between the Ukrainian President Viktor Ianukovitch and the heads of diplomatic missions and representatives of foreign countries and of international organisations accredited to Ukraine.

He added that Angola continues open to a mutually advantageous cooperation partnership in diversified areas, taking into account the government's long-term Strategic Development Plan.
