South Africa, UK eye “deepened and broadened” relations
(MENAFN) South Africa is considering “deepened and broadened” relations with the UK, President Cyril Ramaphosa made a statement on Wednesday.
Ramaphosa assembled with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at Downing Street and stated he seeks to stress on trade and investment and a zero-carbon economy transition.
“For us this is a great opportunity to deepen and broaden our links, links that are historic in many, many ways,” Ramaphosa informed media.
Sunak also noted it was a “historic state visit” and “South Africa and the UK are obviously very strong partners, allies, friends and we share so many of the same objectives – notably transitioning to clean energy while creating jobs and opportunity for our citizens.”
