The Portuguese minister announced this to the journalists Monday at the end of an audience the Angolan president, João Lourenço, granted to him in Luanda.
The agreement will cover areas related to maritime security and cyber defence, said the minister, who praised the cooperation between the two States.
José Azeredo Lopes' visit to Angola is the first of a Portuguese top official after the suspension, for rearrangement of the visit, at the request of the Angolan authorities in January, the visit of the Portuguese justice minister to the country.
Azeredo Lopes' visit had been planned ahead of a ruling by the Lisbon Court of Appeal on the case of the former Vice President of Angola Manuel Vicente, charged with Operation Fizz.
On the other audience, President João Lourenço received the Angolan singer Yola Semedo who, at the time, offered to the Angolan President her most recent CD titled "Sem Medo “No Fear."
