Pretoria – South Africa and Mongolia are set to strengthen bilateral relations by exploring areas of further cooperation between the two countries.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe is on a two-day visit to Mongolia, where he held talks with that country’s Prime Minister Norovyn Altankhuyag.
Motlanthe is accompanied by the Ministers of Mineral Resources, Trade and Industry, as well as Energy to give the two countries an opportunity to set out a programme that can give guidance on where there is room to improve bilateral relations.
“South Africa would like to see more cooperation between our two countries ... We believe that synergies can be found not only in the area of extraction, but also in mining engineering and services.
“South Africa has some of the world's leading safety equipment technologies and the South African government would be happy to see more of these technologies being deployed in the Mongolian mining sector,” said Motlanthe in discussions with Altankhuyag.
Motlanthe said an opportunity existed for South Africa to work with Mongolia to meet its international commitments on climate change.
“We believe that Mongolia's vast coal reserves offer an opportunity for collaboration on clean coal technologies. South Africa's coal-to-liquid technology would mitigate and possibly reduce the country's contribution to greenhouse gases.
“Both SASOL and PetroSA are well positioned to work with your government to work on the realisation of this goal,” Motlanthe said.
