The Mozambican and Angolan governments signed an agreement in Maputo on Monday which establishes mechanisms for annual consultations on bilateral relations.
According to the Mozambique News Agency (AIM) and Angola Press Agency (ANGOP), signing the agreement were Mozambican Foreign Minister Alcinda Abreu, and her visiting counterpart, Joao Miranda.
Speaking to reporters, Abreu said before signing the agreement, the two ministers had reviewed the relations between their countries, and the regional and international situation.
Abreu said in the last two years there had been advances in relations between Mozambique and Angola, expressed in separate agreements on youth and sports, public works and housing and fisheries.
For his part Miranda said despite the traditional friendly relations at political level, "our economic cooperation barely exists, apart from some fishery exports."
Angolan Foreign Affairs Minister Joao Miranda arrived Sunday evening in Mozambique's capital city for a two-day official visit.
On his arrival at Maputo's international airport, the Angolan diplomat, who did not speak to the press, was welcomed by the Mozambican Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Eduardo Koloma.
