Luanda – The President of the Republic, José Eduardo dos Santos, Monday, in Luanda, analysed the cooperation relations with Zambia, when he received an envoy of the neighbouring country’s counterpart, Michael Sata.
The message was delivered at the Presidential Palace in Cidade Alta by the former Head of State of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda, who did not speak to the press at the end of the about 40-minute meeting.
However, official source said that the maintenance of peace, regional stability and the need to expand joint efforts for development topped the meeting.
According to source, the relative importance was given to reactivate the Benguela Railway (CFB) and the activity of the Commercial Port of Lobito, enterprises that will contribute to strengthening relations between the two countries.
At 87-year old, the interlocutor of Jose Eduardo dos Santos was the first President of Zambia from 1964 to 1991, after the independence of the neighbouring country, after colonization by the United Kingdom.
Angola and Zambia comprise the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
