Minister Dlamini Zuma to lay a wreath at the Oliver Tambo Memorial
Bust in Cuba
Havana - South African Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Nkosazana
Dlamini Zuma will lay a wreath at a memorial bust in honour of the late former
ANC President, Oliver Tambo at the Park of African Heroes in Havana, Cuba, later
today, Thursday 29 September 2005.
The late Oliver Tambo played a sterling
role in mobilising international support including Cuba against the inhumane system
of apartheid and in organising political, moral and material support to help bring
about the dawn of peace, democracy and justice to our motherland, South Africa.
Dlamini Zuma is currently in Cuba, leading a senior South African government officials
delegation including South Africa's Ambassador to Cuba, Thenjiwe Mtintso, to the
4th Session of the Joint South Africa-Cuba Bilateral Commission on Economic, Scientific,
Technical and Business Co-operation between the two countries.
Bilateral Commission, which was preceded by a political discussion between Minister
Dlamini Zuma and Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque as well as meetings
of experts in the fields of foreign relations, health, education, public works,
transport, social development, agriculture, trade and industry and water affairs
and forestry, is expected to wind its business later today, Thursday, with the
adoption of a joint declaration and a possible announcement of new future projects
of co-operation between the two countries.

Dlamini Zuma returns to South Africa on Saturday 01 October 2005 ahead of her
scheduled working visit to the Russian Federation to lead a South African government
delegation to the Joint SA-Russia Inter-Trade and Economic Co-operation (ITEC)
