Africa-Press – Angola. The essentials of the preparations for the Russia-Africa Summit, to take place from 27 to 28 July 2023, were transmitted yesterday to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, by the Russian ambassador to Angola, Vladimir Tararov.
The event, which takes place in Saint Petersburg, is the sequel to the Russia-Africa Summit, held in 2019, in the city of Sochi, attended by the Angolan President, João Lourenço.
In a note, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs informs that the meeting between Téte António and Vladimir Tararov also analyzed the holding of the next Angola-Russia Intergovernmental bilateral session.
Also within the framework of multilateralism, the parties addressed issues inherent to the agenda of the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly. This is a meeting whose discussions will take place until next December and will mark the conclusion of the work of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly with the adoption of several resolutions.
In the bilateral scope, the minister Téte António and the ambassador Vladimir Tararov highlighted the launch of the Angolan satellite Angosat-2.
The new Angolan satellite entered orbit last Wednesday (12). With this, the Angolan Government hopes to place the country in a prominent position in communications in Africa.
The satellite was built by the Russian company ISS Reshetnev and sent from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, having been transported by the rocket “Proton-M”.
