Luanda — Angola strongly condemned the return to armed violence and rebellion as ways to resolve internal conflicts and/or the seizing of power, said Thursday in Luanda the Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos.
To José Eduardo dos Santos, "Governments that are legitimated by free choice through the ballot must not be deposed by rebel forces or anti-democratic processes".
The Angolan president considered unacceptable the fact that Africa has now new displays of refugees in sub-human conditions.
To the Head of State, the prevailing situation in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Central African Republic and Guinea Bissau is, unfortunately, a regression in the democratization process of Africa.
He also defended the need to institute and materialise the principle of existence and recognition of two sovereign states, namely Israel and Palestine.
The country's Chief Magistrate manifested his conviction that many crises will be solved or alleviated this year, using the maxim that "while there is life there is hope."
The Angolan Head of State declared that "it is a world that is increasingly interdependent that humanity wants, a balanced world in which the consultation, compatibility of interests and consensus-building
are the motivation and purpose of the leaders that deal with international relations matters."
President José Eduardo dos Santos invited those present to work together for a world of peace, security and understanding among nations.
