“It was not a chance that the last word of John Lourenço, in the speech of the investiture like President of Angola, was a democracy, which is one of the biggest necessities,” – said Fernando dos Santos Neves. He said that only whth maintaining democracy and under the leadership of the current president bright future of Angola can become a reality, for the reason that the new reality is simply necessary because of the collected problems in the country now. He also spoke about the possible help from Portugal, naturally, without any colonial relations.
