Portuguese president confident in mutual future

Luanda – The president of Portugal, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, said on Tuesday in Luanda, that the state of spirit between Angola and Portugal is of trust in the two countries’s mutual future, taking into account the steps given in the last six months.

The Portuguese president said so to the press following his arrival on Tuesday at Angola’s capital, Luanda, where he is due to pay a four-day official visit.

When I was here to attend President JoAPound o Lourenco’s inauguration, my state of spirit was essentially of expectation and hope relatively to a new political cycle in the relations between the two peoples. Today, after one year and half, is of trust in the future of these two great nations underlined the Portuguese president.

While questioned on the incident that took place in Portugal (Which involved Angolan citizens and the Portuguese police) in January this year at Jamaica district, mostly inhabited by Angolans, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa considered it meaningless, underscoring that the most important by now is not the annoying of the past, but the future that lies ahead for the two countries.

The Portuguese president is since Tuesday in Luanda for a four-day State visit at the invitation of the Angolan president, JoAPound o Lourenco.
