US Ambassador praises relations with Angola and guarantees support for democratization

The US ambassador to Angola this Wednesday urged “skeptics” of the partnership between the two countries to look at the “clearly positive” trajectory of relations over the last decade and guaranteed support for the democratization process.


Tulinabo Mushingi, who was speaking at a press conference about the meeting between the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, and the North American President, Joe Biden, last week in Washington, highlighted that his country's priority is also to discuss with the Angolans on the evolution of the relationship between both countries.

"For those Angolans who are not believing in this partnership, I can only tell them to look at what is already happening, in the last 5, 7, 10 years, it is a big difference that we are making here, compared to when we started this relationship for 30 years", said the diplomat.

According to the ambassador of the United States of America (USA) in Angola, the trajectory of relations between Luanda and Washington "is clearly positive" and cooperation is growing in different sectors.

Angola and the USA will "continue to work on this relationship", he assured, promising work and firm action from North American companies to strengthen the Angolan economy.

Tulinabo even said he was not bothered by people who distrust cooperation between Angola and the USA, pointing to the current period marked by "positive results".

"All Angolans can see that, working together, we can produce positive results for both people", he stressed, highlighting the transfer of technology, promotion of human capital, creation of jobs for Angolans, the use of local content and transparency, as characteristics of American companies in Angola.

The North American diplomat also said he believes that strong democracies boost strong economies, peace and stability in countries, promising that his country will continue to support the efforts of the Government and the Angolan people on the democratic path.

He further considered that each country must decide the path to follow, within the minimum basic principles, such as freedom of the press, political freedom and the organization of elections.

"If Angolans believe in democracy they will continue to ask for this to happen", he maintained.

The diplomat assured that the US embassy will continue to promote exchanges between both peoples, noting that, in 2022, the diplomatic mission issued around 11,000 business and tourist visas, 500 visas for emigrants and around 1000 visas for students.
