Luanda - The Angolan President, João Lourenço received Thursday in New York a message from his Ivorian counterpart, Alassane Ouattara, related to the cooperation between the two countries.

The message was delivered by the Ivorian Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Integration and Diaspora, Kandia Kamissokoko Camara, during an audience granted by the Angolan Head of State, on the sidelines of the 76th session of the General Assembly, whose debate ends on the 27th of this month.

In statements to the press after the meeting, Kandia Camara said it was a message "of fraternity, an expression of the good cooperation between our two countries and peoples.

The Ivorian head of diplomacy said that President Ouattara had asked her to convey to his "brother," João Lourenço, his satisfaction for the convergence of points of view between the two leaders on the issue of preserving peace in the two countries.

He affirmed that Ouattara also expressed his satisfaction for the harmony between the two leaders on the reinforcement of security, the promotion of economic development and the improvement of the populations' living conditions.

The audience took place shortly after João Lourenço spoke in the debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, taking place from 21 to 27 this month in New York.

In his speech, he demanded the immediate and unconditional release of deposed Guinea-Conakry President Alpha Condé, detained by the military during a coup d'état earlier this month in Conakry.

He urged the international community to act more firmly and decisively to discourage unconstitutional changes of regimes, in Africa, rather than limiting itself to mere declarations of condemnation.

According to the Angolan leader, it is worrying that the change of constitutional order that often occurs in African countries with the use of military force has not been met with an adequate and sufficiently vigorous reaction from the international community.
