Angolan President Meets With Car Counterpart

Luanda — The Presidents of Angola, João Lourenço, and of the Central African Republic (CAR), Faustin Touadéra, met in private this Monday in Luanda.

No information was given to the press at the end of the meeting, which lasted just over an hour.

President Touadéra has regularly provided information on the progress of his country's pacification process.

The Angolan Head of State, as acting president of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), of which the Central African Republic is a member, has been interceding for the pacification and stability of that country.

Last month, Angola emphasized, at a session of the UN Security Council, the need for an end of the arms embargo imposed on the Central African Republic (CAR).

According to President João Lourenço, the embargo has no justification, as the authorities of that country (CAR) have the right to guarantee the security and defence of the territorial integrity of that State.

This year, Luanda has hosted two mini-summits of Heads of State and Government for peace in CAR.
