Portugal analyzing Equatorial Guinea's application to the CPLP

Monday, November 21, 2011

Portugal is thinking:

Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho said today in Luanda that his government is "open" to considering Equatorial Guinea's application to the CPLP, the association of Portuguese language countries.

In a joint press conference with the president of Angola (José Eduardo dos Santos), he acknowledged the application and stressed that "Equatorial Guinea has a great importance in the region for the Portuguese language...we know about the commitment to adopt Portuguese as an official language and we note the statement of intent that their government made regarding the implementation of values and conditions of the CPLP."

Domingos Simoes Pereira of the CPLP said last May that it would be desirable to get some progress for Equatorial Guinea's application, specifically the introduction of the Portuguese language in the system of education, and the fulfillment of human rights.
