Obiang Nguema off to Ouaga for Francophonie Summit

Malabo- Equatorial Guinea (PANA) -- Equatorial Guinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema left Malabo Friday for Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to attend the 10th Francophonie summit, official sources said here.
Nguema, who returned Thursday from a trip to Italy and France, is to meet, on the sidelines of the summit, his counterparts with whom he will discuss, among others, "issues relating to security in Africa," the source noted.
The former Spanish colony, which became independent in October 1968, adhered to the franc-zone in 1983 before becoming member of the Francophonie in 1989.
The only Spanish-speaking sub-Saharan country adopted French as a second official language in January 1998.
