The governments of Mozambique and the Seychelles have expressed interest in signing a general agreement on bilateral cooperation. The announcement was made after a meeting on Friday between Mozambique’s Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Minister José Pacheco and the Secretary of State of the Office of Foreign Affairs under the Presidency in Seychelles, Barry Faure.
“We identified a step that is the establishment of a general bilateral cooperation agreement between the two countries. We will do everything possible so that this agreement can be signed as soon as possible,” said the Mozambican minister.
According to Pacheco, the signing of a general agreement will open up opportunities for more agreements between the two countries.
“But there is understanding of the return to culture and free movement of people through the implementation of visas for the two countries,” added Pacheco, stressing that the two countries have an interest in cooperation in the area of transport and communication.
According to Pacheco, the Seychelles expressed interest in Mozambique’s mineral resources.
“They are interested in getting 75 megawatts to generate power and we take note for procedural purposes to see how that interest can be implemented,” he said.
Faure said the two officials reviewed the bilateral relations between the respective countries.
He reiterated that his country has an interest in collaborating in the areas of transport and communication.
