South Africa official says support for Palestine firm

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — South Africa’s deputy minister of international relations and cooperation, Ebrahim Ebrahim, stressed Wednesday his country’s unchanging position in support of the Palestinian cause.

South Africa stands beside the Palestinian people until they accomplish all their goals and aspirations, Ebrahim said during a meeting with a Palestinian delegation in Durban, officials said.

He told the delegation, at the COP 17 conference, that his country is committed to accomplishing internal Palestinian reconciliation. He says it will “support the steadfastness of the Palestinian people”.

The minister of environmental authority, Yousef Abu Safia, has informed the deputy minister with the latest efforts to end the internal division and achieve national reconciliation, the officials said.

Among the members of Palestine’s delegation at COP17 are Palestinian ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour, ambassador to South Africa Ali Halima, and environmental minister Abu Safia.
