Ramaphosa visit set to re-energise South African-India Ties

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, along with nine ministers during his January 25-26 Delhi trip, will seek to rejuvenate bilateral strategic partnership — that was declared by Nelson Mandela in 1997 from the Red Fort – helping India to play a bigger role in the Africa’s biggest economy amid massive Chinese inroads.

The Indo-S African strategic partnership had lost some momentum in past few years under Jacob Zuma’s rule despite PM Narendra Modi’s visit to South Africa in 2016.  Modi’s second trip to South Africa, coinciding with the BRICS Summit, opened up new lines of engagement.

The two sides, during Ramaphosa’s trip, will sign a new document on strategic partnership with special focus on defence, maritime security, blue economy and investments, indicated persons familiar with the visit.   Read More
