Mozambique: Nyusi Hails Portugal As Costa Resumes Bilateral Talks

  • 0

The President of the Republic of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi has expressed gratitude to Portuguese prime minister, António Costa for the resumption of bilateral meetings meant to boost the country’s economy.

Nyusi also congratulated Costa for his victory in the legislative elections of January 30, in which the PS achieved an absolute majority

This development followed the opening moments of the extended meeting of the two delegations at the Fifth Luso-Moçambican Summit, at the Presidency of the Republic of Mozambique, after the two leaders had earlier met Thursday behind closed doors.

Thanking Costa for accepting to attend the Maputo summit, Nyusi said, “The interval was very short to organize, but the Portuguese people did not need much time to decide what they wanted most, more stability. My congratulations are more for the Portuguese people, who in a serene, exemplary, and calm way elected you and the PS to be at the head of the country’s destiny”.

In his reaction, Costa reaffirmed “Portugal’s full commitment to continue working with Mozambique, both in facing difficulties and contribution so that Mozambique may take full advantage of all its potentialities.

“And I think that this summit, as we already have a new strategic program, have a new framework program in the area of defence, opens up prospects for us to take a very important leap forward in the traditional areas of sovereignty, health, education and especially in the diversification of the economy, not only in those areas as important as energy but also in agriculture, which are areas of great potential for the future of Mozambique”.

“Thank you very much, Mr President, for the opportunity to work together, Costa said as he noted the hospitality with which he was received in Maputo.

But the Head of the Portuguese government said it is “always a great pleasure” to return to the city where his father was born, considering it is like finding in Maputo a few of his roots.

Recalling that the last summit between the two countries was in 2019, in Lisbon, the prime minister pointed out, “it was a very promising moment for Mozambique, it was a very short time away from taking a new step in the consolidation of peace.”
