Luanda — The Angolan President, José Eduardo dos Santos, highlighted on Friday in Luanda the convergence of positions between Angola and China at the international level and in all issues related to the international security.
The President said so at the opening of the official talks between the delegations of the two countries, in which the Chinese entourage was led by its Prime-Minister Li Kegiang.
The Angolan statesman said that peace and stability are essential conditions for the development, as well as the dialogue and negotiation, the best way for its keeping and recovery in case of conflict.
So, the Angolan President said that his government wishes to continue to consult positions with China at diplomatic plan, so as to guarantee the security in the Gulf of Guinea and thus influence all parties involved in the region in order to restore and consolidate peace in the Great Lakes Region, namely in Central African Republic (CAR), Nigeria and South Sudan.
On the other hand, José Eduardo dos Santos considered important that China, as permanent member of the UN Security Council, may also exercise its influence so that the peace-keeping forces in Africa may have resources and continue to develop their respective missions with success.
According to him, running for the seat of non-permanent member to the UN Security Council, Angola intends at this level to present its points of view and contribute to international peace and security, convinced that this assumption is fundamental for the functioning of the current system of the international relations.
