Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe have strengthened their broad lines of cooperation in various fields, under a verbal process signed on Tuesday in São Tomé between delegations of the two countries, according to the local press.

“The delegations focused on cooperation in the fields of defence and internal affairs, justice, finance, air and maritime transport, mineral and oil resources, tourism, fisheries and the sea, investment promotion, trade and communication, among others,” said the spokesman for the talks, São Tomé diplomat Adimilo Nascimento, quoted by the STP Press news agency.

“With regard to bilateral cooperation, the delegations reaffirmed the commitment of their respective governments to a greater dynamism in relations between the two countries and, in this context, to analyse the different legal instruments signed and identify new areas of mutual interest,” he said.
