Luanda — The Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos, was informed on the current situation in the Central African Republic (CAR), marked by the armed rebellion that treats the country's integrity, Angop has learnt.

The President got information from the local Foreign Affairs minister, Antoine Gambi, who is in Angola since Thursday bearing a message from President François Bozizé.
