At the end of the meeting, held behind closed doors, the director for Africa and the Middle East of the Angolan Foreign Affairs Ministry, Joaquim do Espírito Santo, told the press that the audience also focused on regular consultations between the two states.

He added that the consultations run under the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the African Union, organisations of which they are members.
