He said on the occasion that the participation of angola in the fourth african meeting of solidarity with Cuba from September 21-23 “reaffirms once more the speech of the Angolan authorities since the moment the Angolan people started its relationship with this Caribbean country.”
The politician reaffirmed Angols’s support for the campaign being undertaken by the Cuban authorities against the economic embargo the Caribbean country has been under for more than three decades and the release of the five Cuban citizens in the United States for the last 14 years.

According to him, the Angolan delegation will do its best to help Cuba attain its two goals.
