South Africa is committed to support the Republic of Iran, says International Relations and Cooperation Deputy Minister Reginah Mhaule.
“Despite all the constraints we remain committed to continue to support the Islamic Republic of Iran. It is my firm belief that today’s meeting will add further momentum to our bilateral relations, such that South Africa and Iran will weather the storm together,” said the Deputy Minister on Friday.
The Deputy Minister made these comments at the start of the ninth Deputy Ministerial Working Group Meeting (DMWG) between South Africa and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
At the meeting in Cape Town, Mhaule welcomed the opportunity to engage with Iran’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr Abbas Araghchi, saying the meeting is opportune as it will better bilateral relations between South Africa and the Western Asian country.
