Luanda - The Angolan permanent representative to the African Union (AU), Francisco José da Cruz, reaffirmed Thursday, the engagement of the Angolan diplomacy in favour of a greater insertion of national cadres in the continental organisation.

According to a statement issued to ANGOP, Francisco José da Cruz, who was speaking during a meeting with the AU vice-chairperson, Monique Nsanzabaganwa, pointed out that, despite Angola being one of the six largest contributors of the statutory budget, the country is still under-represented in the structures of the continental organisation, filling only five of the 74 vacancies to which it is entitled and without any Angolan in a leading position.

He stressed that this incipient presence of Angola is not in line with its strategic importance on the continent, nor with its active role in the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts in Africa in the search for "African solutions to African problems.

On the occasion, the Angolan diplomat, who is also Angola's ambassador to Ethiopia and permanent representative to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), praised the way the AU reform process is taking place.

In her turn, Monique Nsanzabaganwa stressed Angola's importance as a member state of the African Union and expressed her willingness to support the country so that more national cadres could successfully apply for vacancies in the recruitment process for Phases I and II of the organisation's Transition Plan.

During the meeting, the two interlocutors discussed administrative issues and others of mutual interest for the AU and the Republic of Angola.
