Government Wants to Cooperate with Trinidad and Tobago on Hydrocarbons

Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi, quoted by Agência de Informação de Moçambique, said that Mozambique could cooperate with Trinidad and Tobago in the area of hydrocarbons, given its successful experience in gas and oil exploration.

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo, the head of state expressed this wish on Thursday, 9 May, in Maputo, during the presentation of the letters of credence of the High Commissioner of Trinidad and Tobago, Lovell Macio Francis.

‘He expressed to the high commissioner of Trinidad and Tobago the government’s desire to co-operate in the area of hydrocarbons, bearing in mind that that Caribbean country has successfully developed its oil and gas industry’

According to the minister, the Mozambican statesman also indicated tourism as another sector with potential in bilateral cooperation, as well as free trade, in the multilateral sphere, given the similarity of the processes underway in this area in Africa and the Caribbean region of the American continent.

The head of state expressed this wish during the ceremony to present letters of credence to six diplomats.

According to AIM, Filipe Nyusi received letters of credence from Philip Mundia Githiora, high commissioner-designate of the Republic of Kenya; Dom Luís Moñoz Cárdaba, apostolic nuncio-designate of the Holy See; and Luís Miguel Lopes de Sousa Sequeira, ambassador-designate of the Republic of East Timor. Also presenting their letters of credence to the President were Elsebeth Sondergaard Krone, ambassador-designate of the Kingdom of Denmark, and Wasfi Abdallah Ali Ayyad, ambassador-designate of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

According to Verónica Macamo, during the ceremony, Filipe Nyusi praised the principles and values of independence, freedom, democracy, justice and sovereignty that bind Mozambique to Kenya, the Holy See, East Timor, Trinidad and Tobago, Denmark and Jordan.

The head of state stressed that Mozambique and the six states represented by the newly accredited diplomats share the rules that govern the international community, based on multilateralism and the search for international peace and security, using peaceful dialogue and negotiations.
