Minister Nkoana-Mashabane signs MoU on Political Consultations and Cooperation between the Governments of South Africa and Greece

International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and the Greek Ambassador to South Africa, Ms Maria Diamantopoulou, signed  a “Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Political Consultations and Cooperation between the Governments of the Hellenic Republic and the Government of the Republic of South Africa”
today in Pretoria.

The purpose of the MoU is to establish a structured framework for cooperation and coordination that regulates meetings and consultations between the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of South Africa and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Hellenic Republic on bilateral relations and issues of mutual concern.

The MoU seeks to promote collaboration and enhance knowledge and efficiency by providing for the sharing of information and cooperation in the political, economic, cultural, scientific and technical fields and of consular relations.

South Africa and Greece enjoy constructive bilateral relations based on shared commitment to the values of freedom, democracy and a similar approach to a broad range of international issues. This is due, in part, to the strong cultural links and long-standing diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The presence of a large and economically robust Greek Diaspora in South Africa, estimated at 45 000, contributed to the establishment of diplomatic relations following South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. Since then, the two countries have developed a cordial relationship based on a common commitment to freedom and democracy, and adopted a similar approach to a broad range of international issues.

ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION
