Portugal’s President, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, spent Monday in the Angolan capital and went for a half-hour swim beside the Ilha de Luanda, as he tried to calm the currents in the relationship between the two countries.

President Rebelo de Sousa visits Angola

President De Sousa had been in Luanda to attend the inauguration ceremony of Angola’s new president, João Lourenço, but on Monday he was still going to be welcomed by the out-going José Eduardo dos Santos.
The Portuguese president explained that the dip in the Atlantic brought back memories of the year when, before 2005, he lectured at the Universidade Agostinho Neto in Luanda and he would start the day early with a swim in the ocean.
During this return to Angola, he stressed the “fraternal bonds” between the two countries and the “currents” of the Portuguese and Angolans who travel in both directions, to conclude that he couldn’t miss the investiture of the new president as it was a “family party”.
“My presence is the presence of millions of Portuguese”, he said.

Comments

I thing mr. Rebelo has showen that he cares about keeping a good relationship between the two countries and respective peoples. A good leader should not take certain things personal and must focus on what is realy relevant and important for the common good of both counties. After all there is alot at stake for both sides.
