The People's Republic of China and the People's Republic of Angola, desirous to promote the harmonious relations and multiform cooperation between them so as to contribute to the realization of the purposes of the United Nations and conscious of the historical role that all the peoples should play in the course of rapprochement and solidarity among the countries that love peace and freedom, have decided to establish diplomatic relations between their two Governments at ambassadorial level as from January 12, 1983.
The Government of the People's Republic of China supports the Government of the People's Republic of Angola in its just struggle to safeguard national independence, state sovereignty and territorial integrity and to develop the national economy, and condemns the systematic aggression of the South African racist troops against Angola, and demands the withdrawal of South African troops from the territory of Angola.
The Government of the People's Republic of Angola recognizes that the Government of the People's Republic of China is the sole legal government representing all the Chinese people, and that Taiwan is an inalienable part of the territory of the People's Republic of China.
In this spirit, the People's Republic of China and the People's Republic of Angola wish to establish relations on the basis of the principles of mutual respect for state sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.
The People's Republic of China and the People's Republic of Angola also indicate that they wish to work, as always, for the establishment of relatively just and equitable world economic relations, and for the strengthening of their efforts in the maintenance of international peace and security.
The Governments of China and Angola have agreed to mutually provide each other with all the necessary assistance for the establishment, and performance of the functions, of diplomatic missions in their respective capitals in accordance with international practice.
