Mozambican parliamentary delegation arrives in Luanda

Speaking to the press, at the 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, in Luanda, the head of the visiting delegation, Valeria Mitelela, informed that the visit is aimed at the exchange of experiences with the Angolan National Assembly (Parliament), in pertinent issues like premature marriage and consumption of drugs.

We came to Luanda to exchange experiences, particularly with the Parliamentary Women Forum, since Angola is a brother country and facing the same problems as Mozambique, in which Assembly of Republic (parliament) we are represented by 40 per cent, and it is made up by 250 MPs, she explained.

While in Angola, the Mozambican delegation is to be received in an audience by the Angolan National Assembly Speaker, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos.

They will also hold work meetings with Angolan female MPs and with members of the Angolan Association of Female Jurists.

The Mozambican parliamentarians � who are scheduled to leave the country on Friday � will equally visit the new premises of the Angolan National Assembly, the Horizonte Azul children’s shelter home, the Dr. Antonio Agostinho Neto Memorial, and the Ministry of Family Issues and Promotion of Women.

Meanwhile, in the ambit of the bilateral co-operation, the Angolan National Assembly Speaker, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, has recently visited Mozambique, at the invitation of his Mozambican counterpart, Veronica Nataniel Macamo.

On that occasion, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos was received in an audience by the Mozambican Head of State, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi.

Just like Angola, the Republic of Mozambique is a member of the Portuguese Speaking Countries Communiy (CPLPLP), Southern Africa Development community (SADC) and the African Portuguese Spaking countries Community (PALOP).
