THE high regard Namibia as a country enjoys in Africa is evident in the fact that the South African Foreign Affairs Minister paid a courtesy call on President Hage Geingob to asure him of the stability that will continue to exist despite the ongoing violent uprising in certain centres of that country.
Dr. Naledi Pandor also participated in diplomatic and political consultations with Namibia’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah.
The two Ministers discussed the way forward towards convening the long-overdue meeting between the Heads of State of the two countries.
At the same time the two foreign affairs minister had discussion about regional and international issues that have an influence on both countries.
Namibia and South Africa enjoy cordial relations that are not only fraternal but historic. Both countries have mutual interests on issues of political stability and economic integration of the Southern Africa region as well as the pursuit of Africa’s renewal in the context of the African Union’s Agenda 2063.
Like South Africa, Namibia will also be adversely affected by the interruption of consumer goods and certain food items caused by the giant mobs of criminals that went on a destructive looting spree in the KwaZulu Natal Province.
During her visit to State House, Dr. Pandor assured President Geingob that trade relations between the two countries will be normalised as soon as possible.
