South Africa, Cuba Honor Oliver Tambo

South Africa, Cuba Honor Oliver Tambo
Havana, Sep 29 (Prensa Latina) South Africa┬┤s Foreign Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will lay Thursday a wreath at a memorial in Havana, in honour of the late former ANC President, Oliver Tambo.

The ceremony is to take place at the Park of African Heroes in the Cuban capital.

Minister Dlamini-Zuma is currently in Cuba, leading a South African delegation to the 4th Session of the Joint South Africa-Cuba Bilateral Commission on Economic, Scientific, Technical and Business Co-operation between the two countries.

On Wednesday, she held talks with her Cuban counterpart Felipe Perez Roque on the importance of coordinating actions in multilateral meetings as the best way to achieve an effective defense of the interests of the so-called South nations.

The host FM took the opportunity to particularly thanked South Africa for its solidarity with Cuba at international meetings.

Perez Roque said talks with Dlamini-Zuma will help start preparations for the Summit of Non-Aligned Countries, slated for September 2006.

South Africa, Malaysia and Cuba share great responsibility in organizing this multilateral event, he indicated.

The Cuban minister also said the two delegations will discuss how to keep broadening bilateral relations, the recently-closed UN Summit and other issues that meeting left pending.

The Joint Bilateral Commission was preceded by a political discussion between Dr Dlamini Zuma and Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque as well as meetings of experts in the fields of foreign relations, health, education, public works, transport, social development, agriculture, trade and industry and water affairs and forestry.

The Commission is expected to wind its business later Thursday, with the adoption of a joint declaration and a possible announcement of new future projects of co-operation between the two countries.

Dlamini Zuma will return to South Africa ahead of her scheduled working visit to the Russian Federation to lead a South African government delegation to the Joint SA-Russia Inter-Trade and Economic Co-operation (ITEC) meeting in Moscow.

On Oliver Tambo, the South African foreign minister said he was instrumental in organising political, moral and material support to help bring about the dawn of peace, democracy and justice to South Africa.
