Quito — The President of Equador, Rafael Correia, congratulated his Angolan counterpart, José Eduardo dos Santos, for Angola's success achieved in political, economic and social domains.
The congratulation was transmitted by diplomat Nelson Cosme when presenting his credentials that accredit him as extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Angola to Ecuador to that country's acting president, Lenin Moreno Garcês, since the Ecuadorian Head of State, Rafael Correa, is on campaign for a new term.
In the ceremony of presentation of credentials, ambassador Nelson Cosme, accompanied by his wife Neogilda Cosme, and members of the Angolan diplomatic mission, spoke with Garcês Lenin.
Garcês Lenin said Angola's success encourages Ecuador, a country that is also committed to development, after many years of instability and uncertainty.
During the audience it was discussed prospects of strengthening relations between Angola and Ecuador, whose ways were discussed Wednesday in meetings that ambassador Nelson Cosme had with the minister in charge of Foreign Affairs and heads of Bilateral and Multilateral Relations department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ecuador.
Angola and Ecuador will work in the near future for the conclusion of legal instruments governing the relations and bilateral cooperation in the multilateral consultations within the summit of Africa-South America (ASA) whose next meeting will be held in February in Malabo, capital of Equatorial Guinea.
Lenin Garcês is the Vice President of the Republic of Ecuador.
