Paris – The Angolan permanent delegate to UNESCO, Sita José, signed the Memorandum on Harmonization of Candidacy for the Executive Board of the world education organisation, in the framework of a concert among the sub-group of central Africa.
The ceremony was presided over Sita José as chairman of the sub-region and was attended by representatives of Angola, Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, DR Congo and Chad.
The memorandum underlines the efforts of the heads of state to build a strong and united central Africa, in line with the principles of the African Union and the need for its presence in UNESCO’s executive board.
The consolidation of ties of friendship, fraternity and solidarity among member states of central Africa requires a conciliation, commitment and mutual support during the election in UNESCO, says the memorandum.
Equatorial Guinea was proposed to take a two-year term (2011-2013) and Angola to take a four years term (2011-2015) in the executive board of UNESCO.
