Luanda - A message, whose content has not been disclosed, from President of Republic of Congo Denis Sassou Nguesso to his Angolan counterpart José Eduardo dos Santos was delivered Tuesday, in Luanda. ,

 

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.

 

Speaking to the press, at the end of the meeting, the head of the Congolese diplomacy, who admitted that he was unaware of the message content, predicted that it might be related to the political stability in the Great Lakes region, an issue that concern the two heads of State.

 

As for the Summit of the leaders of Africa's Great Lakes Region at the end of the current month in Luanda, the official said that the event  will mainly address the ongoing situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Jean Claude Gakosso also confirmed the presence of his country's President Denis Sassou N'guessou at the summit.

 

The Congolese capital, Kinshasa, was the scene of violent clashes between 19 and 20 September.

 

At least 50 people were killed as the result of clashes between security forces and members of the opposition, who demand the departure of President Kabila, whose term ends at the end of December 2016.

 

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.

 

The Great Lakes Region comprises  Angola, Burundi, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR), Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan and Tanzania.
