South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation to address key global issues in media briefing



South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation to Address key Global Issues

In a slated media briefing scheduled for Wednesday, January 31, 2024, Dr. Naledi Pandor, South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, is expected to address crucial international matters.

The anticipated topics of discussion include issues bordering on:

1. Upcoming AU Summit: Minister Pandor is likely to shed light on the forthcoming African Union (AU) Summit scheduled for February. This summit holds significance in addressing continental challenges and fostering collaboration among African nations.

2. NAM and G77 Plus China Summits: The recent meetings of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the Group of 77 (G77) Plus China in Uganda are expected to be key focal points. Minister Pandor might provide insights into the outcomes and discussions from these summits, which play a pivotal role in shaping global diplomatic dynamics.

3. BRICS Chair Position Handover: South Africa’s handover of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) chair position to the Russian Federation is likely to be a significant aspect of the briefing. This transition holds implications for the collaborative efforts and strategic priorities of the BRICS nations.

4. Israeli Offensive on Gaza and ICJ Ruling: Given the ongoing Israeli offensive on Gaza, particularly in the aftermath of the recent International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling, Minister Pandor may address South Africa’s stance and actions concerning the situation. The ICJ ruling could have broader implications for the international community’s response to conflicts in the region.

The media briefing is scheduled to hold at DIRCO Media Briefing Room, by 15h00 – 16h00.

As South Africa continues to play a role in shaping global diplomacy and addressing critical issues on the international stage, Minister Naledi Pandor’s media briefing is anticipated to provide valuable insights into the country’s foreign policy priorities and engagements.
