The data was released in a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stating that this issue was a central topic at the meeting of a multisectoral delegation, headed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, in the province of Cunene (southern Angola).

The Angolan authorities estimate that currently more than 3750 Namibians, 11,141 animals, including cattle, goats, horses and donkeys, distributed in 123 corrals, are in Angolan territory.

Angola and Namibia share a border of 1376 kilometers, bordering the provinces of Cuando Cubango, Cunene and Namibe, with the Namibian provinces of Zambebi, Okavango Oeste, Okavango Leste, Shanghena and Omusati.

According to the ministry, relations between the governments and people of the two countries are "excellent", although there has been "illegal settlement of Namibian citizens who practice agricultural and livestock activities with a tendency towards mechanization in some areas".

The ministers of National Defense, João Ernesto dos Santos, of the Interior, Eugénio Laborinho, and the Secretaries of State for Territorial Administration, Forests and Environment also participated in the meeting.

The meeting is also attended by the head of the Angolan Military Intelligence Service, the governor of Cunene and the Angolan ambassador to Namibia, as well as the Namibian minister of International Relations and Cooperation.
