Zambia, South Africa cement bilateral ties

General News Zambia, South Africa cement bilateral ties

Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Vincent Mwale has called for stronger existing bilateral relations between Zambia and South Africa.

He noted that the two governments need to build on the historical relations already established by the founding fathers.

Mr. Mwale who is also Minister of Local Government and Housing was speaking during the opening of the Heads of Mission Conference for the African region of the Republic of South Africa.

He said he was hopeful that the deliberations will focus on pertinent matters that will continue to drive the foreign policy.

The acting minister said the relations will reignite and strengthen the economic, social and cultural ties that have existed between the two countries.

Mr. Mwale said the conference has come at a time when Africa is commemorating the historic centenary year of Oliver Tambo.

He added that Lusaka was home to many regional liberation movements and its leaders of African National Congress.

Mr. Mwale noted that holding the conference in Zambia is an apt way of honoring Oliver Tambo who once lived in Lusaka.

He said Oliver Tambo was an embodiment of a selfless leader who dedicated his life to ensuring that South Africa was liberated.

He recalled Dr. Kaunda’s commitment to the liberation of South Africa, adding that he did not spare his effort and resources to ensure that South Africa was liberated.

Mr. Mwale said it is in the vain that the relationship between the two countries remain strong.

And South Africa Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Maite Nkoana said South Africa and Zambia have shared strong ties before the two governments got liberated.

She said the two governments need to work together to share ideas on how they can deal with the economic challenges faced they are facing.

Ms. Nkoana added that there is need to remain united as Africans and share resources that will foster development.
