Mbanza Kongo City Historical Centre entered the United Nations Educational,Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) World Cultural Heritage list on July 8, during the 41st Session of the Unesco World Heritage Committee held in Krakow, Poland.

Angola’s thanks were conveyed to the Algerian Foreign minister, Abdelkader Messahel, during an audience he granted to Cerqueira on Tuesday. The Angolan Minister is visiting Algeria at the invitation of her local counterpart, Azzedine Mihoubi.

During the audience, Cerqueira briefed the Foreign Minister on the current political situation in Angola which is gearing up for the general election scheduled for Aug 23 this year.

Messahel re-affirmed Algeria’s friendship with Angola with which it is linked by historical, co-operation and brotherhood ties that date to the days of Angola’s national liberation struggle.
