José Eduardo dos Santos and João Lourenço spoke on the phone

After some speculation regarding the reception of former President José Eduardo dos Santos in the country – in which neither the current PR, João Lourenço, nor any member of the ministerial delegation was present – it is now known that the current President of the Republic maintained a telephone conversation with the ex-PR, this Thursday, in the late afternoon.


The information is official and was released on the Government's website. "President João Lourenço and former President José Eduardo dos Santos had a telephone conversation this afternoon in which they greeted each other", says the short note.

However, no further details about the conversation, namely duration or content, were provided.

Remember that the former President of the Republic, José Eduardo dos Santos, returned to Angola this Tuesday after two years out of the country, spent in Barcelona, Spain.

Currently 79 years old, the ex-PR took office in 1979, following the death of Agostinho Neto, having served as President for 38 years. In September 2017, João Lourenço succeeded him.
