Angola, Unesco Sign Peace Culture Forum Deal

Paris — Angola and UNESCO signed Wednesday in Paris a deal in the framework of the Panafrican Forum for a Culture of Peace set for March 26-27 this year in Luanda.

The accord was signed for Angola by the permanent delegate to UNESCO, ambassador Sita José, and for the UN organisation by the assistant director for External Relations, Eric Falt.

Jointly organised by UNESCO, Angolan Government and the African Union Commission, the forum goes with the theme "Africa: Foundations and Resources for a Culture of Peace" and will be attended by the secretary generals of the UNESCO National Commissions.

The meeting will also be attended by the heads of UNESCO offices to African countries, African Union experts, representatives of UN systems and other intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, media organs and other institutions.

The protocol underlines the excellent relations of cooperation between the Angolan Government and UNESCO, particularly in the contribution to the promotion of sustainable development and inter-cultural dialogue through education, science and culture, which are crucial elements to the UN Education, Science and Culture Organisation.
