President Cyril Ramaphosa is to undertake a working visit to Mozambique and Zimbabwe as the Chair of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
The visit, scheduled for 17 March 2018, also forms part of a long-standing tradition in the SADC region whereby newly-elected Heads of State pay courtesy calls on the leaders of neighbouring countries.
During the visit, said the Presidency on Thursday, President Ramaphosa and his counterparts will discuss bilateral cooperation as well as regional, continental and global issues of mutual concern.
It is expected that the SADC Heads of State will pay particular attention to the latest political and security developments in the region, including the regional economic integration agenda.
President Ramaphosa will be accompanied by the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Lindiwe Sisulu and the Minister of State Security, Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba.
