Luanda — Several actions are being carried out by the Angolan embassy to São Tomé e Príncipe towards a closer approximation of the communities based there to the country.
This was said Monday in Luanda by the Angolan ambassador to the tin-island country, Eduardo Mingas.
Speaking to Angop, the diplomat said there has been a great effort on the part of the embassy to bring the Angolan community in Sao Tome and Principe closer and closer to the country.
Eduardo Mingas said however there is still a lot to do regarding the approximation of the community based there, including the assistance to its members.
According to the ambassador, the effort for approximation of the community in São Tome and Príncipe will be one of the major challenges for his diplomatic mission this year.
The diplomat said the Angolan community based in Sao Tome and Principe, of about 500 people, is complex.
"WE have descendants of Angolans who live in São Tomé and Príncipe for more than five decades, but who continue preserving the Angolan habits and customs, although in many cases they don't even know their origins," said the diplomat.
