17 March 2018
President Cyril Ramaphosa has this afternoon, 17 March 2018, arrived in Harare, Republic of Zimbabwe, to hold a consultative meeting with President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The meeting aims to further strengthen the strong economic, political and social relations that exist between South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The Heads of State are anticipated to exchange views on important regional, continental and global issues of mutual concern.
South Africa and Zimbabwe enjoy excellent bilateral relations which date back to the days of the liberation struggle.
President Ramaphosa, who is also Chair of the Southern African Development Community, met earlier today with President Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique in Maputo where the two leaders held talks that aim to deepen bilateral relations between the two neighbouring countries.
The visits form part of a long-standing tradition in the region, in terms of which newly elected Heads of State pay courtesy calls on neighbouring countries.
President Ramaphosa is accompanied by the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Ms Lindiwe Sisulu and the Minister of State Security, Ms Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba.
