Minister Pandor to address the Palestinian Heads of Mission in Africa Conference, Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria – 26 July 2022
The Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Dr Naledi Pandor, will tomorrow, at 09h00 address the Palestinian Heads of Mission in Africa Conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria.
Minister Pandor has been invited by the Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Dr Riad Malki, who is currently visiting South Africa to attend the Second Conference of the Palestinian African Heads of Mission, scheduled to be held on 26-27 July 2022, in Pretoria.
Since the dawn of democracy in 1994, South Africa has always been an ally of Palestine and has constantly highlighted the struggles of the Palestinian people, supported them on international platforms, and offered material assistance within its capacity.
The formal diplomatic relations were established on 15 February 1995.
The Palestinian Embassy was opened in South Africa in 1995, and the South African Representative Office was opened in 1999 in Ramallah. Based on historical solidarity and moral (human rights) grounds, the South African Government remains committed to the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation.
