Angola: Maldives Wants to Develop Bilateral Ties in Various Sectors

Luanda — The Parliamentary leader of Maldives Abdulla Shahid has expressed his country's intention to develop bilateral cooperation in various sectors with Angola.

The Asian archipelago official, who is paying a three-day official visit to the country, said so Monday when speaking to the press at the "4 de Fevereiro" International Airport in Luanda.

Abdulla Shahid said his visit to Angola is intended to strengthen Parliamentary cooperation between the two legislative bodies and pledged to seize the opportunity to identify, with the Angolan MPs, areas to extend bilateral cooperation in various fields.

Maldives Parliament leader, who is in Luanda, coming from South Africa, as part of a tour of several African countries, has reaffirmed such a availability due to the fact of being the first high ranking official of his State to come to Angola.

According to him, the visit will allow to formalise the issue with the local authorities.

At the end of his statement, the Maldives official praised the efforts made by the Angolan government focussed on improved living standards for population, with stress to the rehabilitation of roads, schools, hospitals, airports among other infrastructures.
