Luanda – The Angolan head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos, Thursday in Luanda received a message from his colleague of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, whose content is related to the strengthening of bilateral relations and the need for
political concerting between the two African countries.
The message was delivered by the deputy minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Francophone of the Central African nation, Eustáquio Nseng Esono.
Asked by the journalists about the crisis in Côte d’Ivoire, the envoy of president Teodoro Obiang Nguema said that his country defends, just like Angola, a political solution that respects the internal law.
“The international community should support these internal initiatives so that there can be a peaceful solution that favours all the parts”, he underlined.
According to Eustáquio Nseng Esono, the standing of Equatorial Guinea coincides with Angola’s in the need for the adoption of peaceful means for the post-election crisis in the West African country.
The Angolan Government encourages the dialogue and negotiation for the resolution of the crisis in Ivory Coast and considers that any military intervention would have a perverse effect, serious consequences beyond its borders.
