In Prague on August 7, 2023

At the invitation of the President of the Republic, Petr Pavel, the President came to the Czech Republic for an official visit Filipe Jacinta Nyusi and his wife Isaura Ferrão Nyusi of the Republic of Mozambique. The presidential couple began their visit at Prague Castle in front of the Honorary Unit of the Castle Guard.

The visit continued with the introduction of the members of the national delegations and a subsequent meeting, an entry in the memorial book of the Prague Castle, an exchange of gifts and a private meeting of the presidential couples.

At the evening press conference, President Petr Pavel evaluated possible future cooperation:

“The Czech Republic can play a much more active role in Africa than it has so far. This fully corresponds to the new strategy of the Czech government for cooperation with Africa. We see its importance also in the fact that African countries often have no other alternative than to cooperate with Russia or China. The more such common options there are, the less room there will be for the negative influence of Russia or China.”

The presidents also discussed economic cooperation in the field of the defense industry, healthcare, transport or renewable energy sources. Tomorrow, the Mozambican delegation will negotiate with Czech companies about export possibilities.
