Angola diplomats fired for attending Jerusalem US embassy event

The Angolan government has fired two of its senior diplomats for attending a gala dinner celebrating the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, according to the Afro-Palestine Newswire Service.

The event, hosted in Tel Aviv by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs last week, was attended by Manuel Augusto Jao Diogo Fortunato, a senior adviser in the Angolan Embassy, with the approval of Angola’s Director for African, Middle East and Regional Organisations, Joaquim do Espirito Santo.

On Monday, Angolan media reported that Fortunato and Santo had both been fired by Angola’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Manuel Augusto, for “failing to comply with procedures and harming Angola’s good reputation.”
