Brazilian aid

Brazilian Foreign Minister Luis Filipe Lampereia has pledged to impress upon international financial institutions to give Angola greater assistance for its economic reforms.

Angolan TV quoted the minister as saying: “Brazil is one of Angola’s most loyal friends in the international arena. We have sought to support the Angolan process at the IMF, the World Bank and obviously at the UN’s Security Council.” He said that Brazil would continue to support Angola’s technical reforms and that he believed that the process would be successful.
