Luanda — The Angolan Foreign minister, Georges Chikoti, Wednesday in Luanda, expressed satisfaction of the country's authorities with the recent appointment of former president of East Timor, Ramos Horta, as special envoy of the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moom, to Guinea-Bissau.
Speaking to reporters after the opening of the meeting of Angolan ambassadors, the Government official stressed that the information was received as an event of high importance.
He added that, from his point of view, Ramos-Horta has very solid references in matters of this kind of conflict resolution.
On the other hand, he said noting that the Guinean parties apparently recognise the importance of this appointment and see it eventually as a vehicle capable of leading them to consensus in this transition period.
"Angola, together with the international community will stand by to support him on what is needed," he said.
"We welcome and encourage it, in order to help Guineans to find the right path to peace and stability in their country," stressed Georges Chikoti.
