Delivered the letter was the minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Congo, Jean Claude Gakosso, who was received in audience by the Angolan head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos.

Kabila wants to seek the third term as DRC president despite a limit of two mandate in Constitution.

 

The diplomat defended the stability in the region, saying that it is very important, as the oil price has been prompting some difficulties caused by the prices that continue to fluctuate.

 

"The intention is to find other investment channels to raise funds," said the top diplomat of the Congo, alluding to the diversification of the economies of the Great Lakes Region countries.
