Angola: U.S Secretary of State Arrives in Luanda

Luanda — The United States Secretary of State, John Kerry, arrived last Sunday in Luanda for a 48-hour visit to the country, aimed at strengthening the political and co-operation relations between Angola and the US.

John Kerry, who was welcomed at the "4 de Fevereiro International Airport" by the Angolan minister of Foreign Affairs, Georges Chikoti, is to hold this Monday a private meeting with the Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos, and participate in the official talks between both countries.

John Kerry's visit will also serve to touch on the situation in the Great Lakes Region, whose rotating presidency is currently being occupied by Angola since January 2014.

The US delegation also comprises the Assistant Secretary for African Affairs, Linda Thomas Greenfield, the Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region and the DRC, Russell Feingold, the Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan, Donald Boothbem, as well as itinerant ambassador Catherine Russel, who is also an assistant of the Secretary of State for women issues.
