Durbam – The Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos, held on Wednesday in Durbam (South Africa) separate meetings with his counterparts of Equatorial Guinea, Russia, Brazil and the Indian Prime Minister, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, Vladimir Putin, Dilma Rousself and Manmohan Singh, respectively.
On the fringes of the fifth BRICS summit, the Angolan statesman discussed with Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, Vladimir Putin, Dilma Rousself and Manmohan Singh aspects related to partnerships for development, integration and industrialization of Angola and other African countries.
Speaking to the press at the end of the meeting, José Eduardo dos Santos said that it is a historical landmark in the relations between BRICS countries and Africa.
“Iam convinced that it was taken important steps”, said the Angolan President.
The BRIC countries label refers to a select group of five large, developing countries (Brazil, Russia, India, South Africa and China) and the five BRIC countries are distinguished from a host of other promising emerging markets by their demographic and economic potential to rank among the world’s largest and most influential economies in the 21st century (and by having a reasonable chance of realizing that potential).
