Southern Africa: SADC Ambassadors in Brazilia Close Year

Brazilia — The Committee of Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Ambassadors to Brazil wound up its 2012 activities during a meeting held on Friday at the embassy of Angola in Brazilia, Angop learned.

The ceremony also set the end of Angola's presidency of the organisation in Brazil.

The meeting assessed the work done this year and enabled an exchange of points of view for a common position regarding the Brazilian institutions and countries of its jurisdiction concerning the decisions from the SADC Extraordinary Summit held recently in Dar-es-Salam, Tanzania.
