Portuguese president visits EU training mission in Mozambique
Portuguese president, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, wrapped up a three-day trip to Mozambique with a visit to two units of the European Union training mission in the country.
During the visit, Rebelo de Sousa said that resolving the conflict in Cabo Delgado, in the north of Mozambique, remained a priority for Portugal and the European Union.
Rebelo de Sousa stressed the need for Mozambique to guarantee the security of the populations and the defeat of terrorism.
Since 2017 that the province of Cabo Delgado, rich in natural gas, has been plagued by armed groups, some with alleged links to the self-proclaimed militant.
The Portuguese head of state assured that as soon as the new Executive led by PM António Costa takes office, the long promised bilateral summit between the two countries, postponed due to elections in Portugal, will be finally scheduled.
Rebelo de Sousa promised he would return to Mozambique in August for the reopening of the Quelimane cathedral in Zambezia province.
