The two ministers of foreign affairs discussed the current state of South Africa-Palestine relations, the consolidation of Africa-Palestine relations, the recent reconciliation agreement reached between Fatah and Hamas, as well as the Middle East Peace Process.

“The meeting between the ministers is the culmination of a weeklong programme in support of the United Nations Declaration of 2014 as the 'International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People’,” said the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
