UAE President receives President of Angola


President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan today received João Manuel Lourenço, President of the Republic of Angola, who is on a working visit to the UAE.

The UAE President and President Lourenço also exchanged views on several issues of mutual concern. They discussed COP28 – to be hosted by the UAE later this year – and the importance that both countries attach to sustainability, climate action and environmental protection.
