Angola and Cuba expect to re-launch bilateral cooperation in the construction and waters sectors, the vice-president of Cuba's Council of Ministers, Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz said on April 16 in the capital Luanda at the end of an audience granted by the Angolan president, João Lourenço.

The Cuban official, who is in Luanda to among other things co-lead the 14th session of Angola-Cuba Intergovernmental Commission, said the possibility of implementing a short and long-term joint programme is currently being assessed. The perspective, added the Cuban official, is that in the first stage the cooperation programmes can be adjusted to the Angolan and Cuban 2019-2021 development plans.

In the meantime, Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz, who was coy on the amount Angola owes to Cuba, underlined that this is not a worrying aspect, since his country is aware of the weak economic moment the country is going through. The Cuban official ends his visit to Angola on April 17.

Angola and Cuba have historical politico-diplomatic relations in various domains, with highlight on the sectors of defence, security, health, education, crude-oil and industry. Despite the slowdown recorded in 1991 and 2002, diplomatic relations between the two countries maintain the same vitality, hence being considered magnificent and of brotherhood.

On the other hand, Angolan ambassador to Republic of Congo Vicente Muanda discussed on December 14 the cooperation in media field with the incumbent minister of the sector in Congo, Thierry Lézin Moungalla.

The meeting assessed the fulfilment level of Verbal Cooperation Process signed during the 6th session of Angola-Congo Bilateral Commission in 2010 in Angola's capital city, Luanda. It also focused on the permanent talk around the protocol projects involving Angola Press Agency and the Congolese counterpart, said a note from the Angolan Embassy reached Angop on December 14.
