MR A WATSON (DA) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION:
Since 9 May 2009 to which countries has the Government sent (a) notes or (b) letters of diplomatic protest and (c) what is the reason for each of these correspondence?
(a, b and c)
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation has engaged in various forms of diplomatic communication with other states. In keeping with quite diplomacy and the diplomacy of Ubuntu, we have handled such matters bilaterally without resorting to making public announcements about such issues. Where appropriate, we have raised issues of concern sharply with a view to getting them resolved or preventing recurrence thereof.
