Angola: Minister Téte António Considers Angola-Us Partnership Prosperous

Washington — The minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, this Sunday, in Washington, considered the strategic partnership between Angola and the United States of America healthy.

"We have had meetings and conversations at various levels. The partnership is a healthy one and I think that this is the assessment that the United States of America has also made", said the head of the Angolan diplomacy, as part of the visit to Washington by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço.

Minister Téte António said that there is cooperation between Angola and the United States of America in various domains, so obviously the presence of some Angolan ministers in Washington, as part of the presidential delegation aim at dealing with aspects related to economic diplomacy.

In his view, all the components that characterize strategic cooperation are on the right path in relation to the US.

Strategic cooperation between Angola and the United States was signed in 2010.

The minister considered as the "highest point" of the Angolan President's visit to Washington the participation in the Annual Gala of the International Conservation Caucas Foundation (ICCF), in which he will be awarded for his leadership in environmental conservation.

"The United States of America has shown a lot of interest in the work that Angola has been doing in this area", he underlined, recalling the recent visit of US congressmen to Angola, particularly to the Okovango project.

He also said that the prize to be awarded to João Lourenço is a deserved recognition of his initiatives, which should make Angola feel proud.

Regarding the participation of the Head of State in the general debate of the 76th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Téte António said that Angola will reiterate its defense of peaceful resolution of conflicts, among other issues of a multilateral nature.
