This conduct will contribute to the normal functioning of democratic institutions in Angola, according to the official who led the ceremony on Monday of promotion of ranks and taking office of general officers, appointed on 13 November by the Commander-in-Chief of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), João Lourenço.

The minister said that the country has less and less resources for the huge commitments to be made in the economic and social recovery, which requires a more rational use of human and financial resources, seeking to do more with fewer resources.

Regarding the appointments, he verified that they happen at a time when the Ministry of National Defense and the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) are in a process of restructuring, taking into account the new challenges of the country, embodied in the reforms of state institutions.
