Travel Restrictions Cease for Former Senior Officials of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (Taken Question)

Question: Why were the travel restrictions on National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) dropped as published in the Federal Register today?

Answer: Secretary of State Colin L. Powell determined on November 28, 2003, that the suspension of entry into the U.S. of senior officials of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) and adult dependents of their immediate families was no longer necessary. This decision was made based on the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola having completed its successful transition into a political party and the peace process in Angola having been fully implemented.
