Angola/Morocco Joint Commission to Boost Cooperation

The 2nd session of the Angola/Morocco Joint Commission will operate as a lever for the operationalisation of existing cooperation between the two countries.

This was said Friday in Luanda by the Angolan Minister of Urbanisation and Housing José António da Conceição e Silva.

The Minister was speaking at the opening of the two-day meeting that is analysing the state of cooperation between the two countries and outline new avenues.

In his address before the Moroccan minister of Tourism, Lahcen Haddad, and co-president of the said Commission, José António da Conceição e Silva said the two countries share political and diplomatic relations forged in the early days of the Angolan liberation struggle.

He said the occasion will be good for an exchange of proposals for cooperation between the two countries aiming at the development and strengthening of the two economies, with a view to the establishment of the basis for a strategic cooperation partnership.

The Minister on the occasion thanked, on behalf of the authorities and people of Angola, for the support extended by the Moroccan State during the country's liberation struggle against the Portuguese rule.

"This deed will by no means ever be erased and will remain forever in the history of the two peoples and world as a good example of brotherhood, solidarity and cooperation," said the Minister.

In his turn, the Moroccan Minister expressed the commitment of his country's authorities to boost cooperation.

The official also said he was optimistic that the meeting would be a success.
