"The application for the next years will be divided into two distinct parts. In the first two years the opportunity will be given to Sao Tome and then to Portugal", Hernâni Coelho announced, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of East Timor, which currently holds the Presidency of the Council of Ministers of CPLP.
Sao Tome and Principe will lead the Executive Secretariat of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries for two years and Portugal will take over the next two years, thereby dividing the mandate of four years. This was the consensus solution reached by Foreign Affairs Ministers of the CPLP's Member States at a meeting at its headquarters.
