Praia, Jul 09 (Inforpress) – The creation of a joint committee to set up the agreements already signed between Cabo Verde and Guinea-Bissau is the understanding reached during a bilateral meeting between the government delegations from the countries held today in the city of Praia.
The meeting, in which the Cabo Verde team was headed by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Energy, Alexandre Monteiro, and the Bissau-Guinean delegation, headed by the Minister of Tourism, Fernando Vaz, took place as part of the official visit to Cabo Verde by the President of Guinea-Bissau, Umaro Sissocó Embaló, at the invitation of his Cabo Verdean counterpart, Jorge Carlos Fonseca.
“Of the around four dozen agreements and other documents have already been signed between the two countries, many of them have not been implemented. In this perspective, we have established a strategy for the more urgent implementation of these established agreements between the two countries,” Fernando Vaz told reporters on the way out of the meeting.
The Guinean government has said that a joint committee will be set up and the two countries Foreign Ministers will address this issue and materialize this intention at the Summit of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP), to be held on July 16 and 17 in Luanda, Angola.
