Sumbe, Angola, Oct 5 (Prensa Latina) The governor of the Angolan province of Cuanza Sur (central), Eusebio de Brito Teixeira, praised the existing ties with Cuban collaborators as very good on Friday.
We have a historical relationship, feel at home, Teixeira told the Cuban ambassador in Luanda, Esther Armenteros, who began this Friday a visit to the town of Sumbe to participate tomorrow in the fourth national meeting of the Association of the Community of Cubans Residing in Angola.
Armenteros thanked for the welcome and mentioned the similarity of some buildings at the entrance to the city, some 300 kilometers south of the country’s capital, with some in her country. The buildings were built by Cubans in the 1980s.
Glad to be in this historic city, added the diplomat.
The governor recalled the importance of the province in arresting South African racist troops in their advance to take Luanda while supporting the forces of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola.
In his second term in office the General was one of the participants in the defense of this territory.
The ambassador thanked the support of the provincial government for the appointment where it is expected to pass a motion of censure against the U.S. blockade against Cuba.
We expect almost a hundred delegates, mainly from the provinces of Luanda, Benguela, Bengo, Malanje and from the host city, representing the almost 300 members of the Association, founded in 1998 and made official in 2008.
