On 16 February, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Cape Verde, José Maria Neves, visited the headquarters of the Community of Sant'Egidio in Trastevere. The Minister was accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maria Jesus Miranda, the Minister of the Environment and of territorial administration Antero Veiga and a diplomatic delegation, present in Rome for the consistory in which the first Cape Verdean cardinal in the history of the Church, Dom Arlindo Gomes Furtado, was ordained. The Prime Minister met Don Angelo Romano and Mauro Garofalo, of the International Relations Office of the Community, together with a large delegation of Sant'Egidio.

During the talks, very friendly and appreciated by both sides, issues were touched on the cooperation between Sant'Egidio and Cape Verde in various areas, particularly in favour of reconciliation, interreligious dialogue and peace in Africa. The Prime Minister also thanked Sant'Egidio for the emergency aid sent to the victims of the volcanic eruptions in Ilha do Fogo. (read more)
