All this will require an effort of coordination until the finalization of the agreements, he said not without before thanking the reception given to the delegation and qualifying the meeting of the eve with Lourenzo as fruitful.
Meanwhile, Cardoso stated that the meeting allowed them to evaluate the state of collaboration, the identification of the areas to deepen the exchange and the new ones that could be added to the collaboration.
We are convinced that good agreements are not ideal; good agreements are those that are not ideal, but focus on our ability to achieve the goals we have jointly set, remarked in the presence of the Chancellor Manuel Augusto and the delegations of both countries in the Ministry of Foreign Relations.
We must work in a systematic and permanent way in the consolidation of our historical relations, he stressed.
