New Deputy Chiefs of General Staff of the Armed Forces sworn in

This Monday, the President swore in the two new deputy chiefs of staff of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), urging them to collaborate in the reorganization of the forces to increase the country's defense capacity in a possible "undesirable situation".


Before the ceremony, João Lourenço, the Commander-in-Chief of the FAA, graduated the two lieutenant generals with the rank of generals.

José Maria Marques assumes the role of deputy chief of the General Staff of the FAA for Patriotic Education and Jaime Manuel Pombo Vilinga as deputy chief of the General Staff for the Operational and Development Area.

In his intervention, the head of state instructed both generals to help the Ministry of Defense reorganize the FAA and provide them with the capacity to better fulfill their mission of defending independence, sovereignty and territory.

João Lourenço stated that Angola has been experiencing a situation of peace for around 22 years, but stressed that the responsibilities of increasing the country's defense capacity should not be neglected in the event of "suddenly facing an undesirable situation, especially aggression external, terrorism and other threats that may jeopardize national sovereignty and the peace and well-being to which Angolans are entitled".

In addition to modernization, with the acquisition of new equipment, the Commander-in-Chief of the FAA said that it is necessary, "above all, to take care of the training of men at all levels, so that they are able to better serve the country".
