Angola: Head of State Gets Message From Congolese Counterpart

Luanda — Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos Wednesday in Luanda received a message from Congo Brazzaville's colleague, Denis Sassou Nguesso.

The letter, whose content had not been disclosed, was delivered by Congolese Interior Minister Zeferin Redymod Mboulou during an audience granted to him by the Angolan president.

Speaking to the press, the Congolese Interior Minister said that the situation in his country is stable, as the local institutions are operating smoothly.

He stressed that the Presidential elections, held on 12 July this year, were won by the President Denis Sassou Nguesso and the results were validated by the Constitutional Court.

As for the situation of Angolan refugees in Congo Brazzaville, the official said recently there was a meeting with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and it is expected that shortly there will not be any more citizens of Angola with refugee status in that neighbouring country.

The Congolese envoy stressed the excellent relations of brotherhood between the Republics of Angola and Congo Brazzaville.
