Presidency spokesperson, Dr. Bongani Ngqulunga, says President Jacob Zuma's state visit to Paris aims to discuss investment and foreign relations for the future.
France President François Hollande has given President Zuma the assurance that UK's vote to leave the European Union will not affect France's relations with South Africa.
President Jacob Zuma urged President François Hollande to make sure there is a resolution of the matter [Bretix], so that it becomes clear what it’s going to happen moving forward.— Dr. Bongani Ngqulunga, Presidency spokesperson
Afternoon Drive’s Xolani Gwala asked Ngqulunga about the negotiations around nuclear power and France's role in this.
There were no specific focus on nuclear. It’s just about cooperation between South Africa and France on energy, and interestingly the issue was on renewable energy more than nuclear.— Dr. Bongani Ngqulunga, Presidency spokesperson
France has some interest in investing in renewable energy programme of South Africa.— Dr. Bongani Ngqulunga, Presidency spokesperson
