Luanda – The speaker of Guinea-Bissau’s National People’s Assembly, Cipriano Cassamá, Friday denied the existence of any climate of tension between his country and Angola.

Speaking to the press at the end of a meeting with the speaker of the Angolan National Assembly, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, Cassamá said that Angola has always been and will continue to be an unquestionable partner for Guinea-Bissau.

“Political and diplomatic relations are good, our relations are those of friendship, brotherhood and, above all, historical,” he said, adding that he had discussed institutional relations with the Speaker of the Angolan National Assembly, particularly between the parliaments of both countries.

Cipriano Cassamá is representing Guinea-Bissau at the 13th Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP), to be held Saturday in Luanda.

At the meeting with his Angolan counterpart, he conveyed the recommendations and conclusions of the meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP), held recently in Bissau (capital of Guinea-Bissau).

The installation of the Executive Secretariat of the PA-CPLP in the Angolan capital, Luanda, was also hinted at by the two parliamentary leaders. The organ will operate in one of the wings of the National Assembly Palace.
