Maputo — The Angolan ambassador to Mozambique, Isaías Jaime Vilinga, said in Maputo that one of the priorities of his mission next year is to get the relations of cooperation and friendship with Mozambique consolidated and strengthened.
Isaías Jaime Vilinga was addressing journalists and workers of the Angolan Embassy in Maputo, during the ceremony of yearend greetings.
The ambassador said on the occasion that a special attention will be paid to the Angolan community resident in Mozambique.
According to the diplomat, despite some constraints, the year 2012 was positive, having appealed to fellow-diplomats and workers of the Embassy to follow the head of State's urge to correct what is bad and improve what is well.
He also spoke of the need to follow up the files concerning the southern Africa Development Community (SADC) and the Portuguese Speaking Community (CPLP) as Mozambique took over from Angola the presidency of the two organisations.
Another matter mentioned by the ambassador as one of the priorities for his term is to speed the issuing of visas as an incentive to the strengthening of relations between the two countries and tourism.
