MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow welcomes the election victory of the Angolan president, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
“We view the general election held in Angola on August 31 as an important event in the political life of the country in the context of the consolidation of democracy and the establishment of a mature civil society,” the ministry said.
It lauded the Angolan election governance and the peaceful and transparent voting.
The ruling party, MPLA, and its leader, Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, won a convincing victory, the Angolan elections commission said after 90% of votes had been counted.
“We welcome the victory of Jose Eduardo Dos Santos and his party and note that the preliminary results of the election reflect the broadening political plurality in Angola against the backdrop of the strengthening stability and socioeconomic growth,” the ministry said. “Moscow is ready to carry on and to deepen multifaceted cooperation with the Republic of Angola on the time-tested principles of mutual respect, friendship and solidarity.”
