“We are very proud of these young Angolans, who learned the mechanisms of resistance and struggle for the independence of their country,” she said.
The Angolan minister, accompanied by the wali (governor) of Mostaganem, Abdelwahid Temmar, Algeria’s Ambassador to Angola Larbi Latreche, said that culture would open way to other forms of partnership in various areas, like the protection and preservation of heritage, theatre, music and others.
