The Portuguese top diplomat was speaking to the press at the end of a meeting between the President of Angola, João Lourenço and his Portuguese counterpart, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, in Mozambique's capital, Maputo that is aimed at discussing political, economic and social cooperation.

In Maputo, the Angolan and Portuguese statesmen attended the inauguration ceremony of Mozambique Head of State, Filipe Nyusi, who was re-elected for constitutionally-mandated second term, ahead of the Portuguese Speaking African country. The expectations of the Portuguese business community includes the country's economic agenda, with stress to the privatisation process of Angolan state-owned firms, Augusto Santos Silva said.
