President cancels visit to New York
Maputo, 16 Sept (AIM) - As part of the Mozambican government's austerity measures, adopted following unrest in Maputo at the beginning of September, President Armando Guebuza has cancelled a planned visit to the United States, where he was to have participated in the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Explaining this decision to reporters on Thursday, Foreign Minister Oldemiro Baloi said that the recent disturbances "showed the difficulties and great challenges that we still have to overcome, and one of the decisions taken by the government is to cut expenditure in a rational fashion".

Furthermore, the government believed that the presence of President Guebuza inside the country was "very important" for the time being.

The President, added Baloi, had given a signal of responsibility and coherence, and other members of the government and of the public administration were expected to follow this example of austerity and of restricting expenditure.

However, this did not rule out all foreign trips by Guebuza. Baloi said that later this year, President Guebuza has a state visit to India planned, during which several cooperation agreements, regarded as important for the country's development, will be signed.

The government, he added, has been studying what other visits abroad can be cancelled or delayed, and also what visits to Mozambique by foreign heads of state can be postponed.
