Bilateral relations between South Africa and Mozambique will be strengthened on Friday when President Cyril Ramaphosa receives his Mozambican counterpart, President Filipe Nyusi, in Pretoria.
The leaders will attend the third session of the binational commission between the two nations.
The meeting was preceded by foreign ministers who met on Thursday.
South Africa and Mozambique share strong historical ties stemming from the solidarity born during the two nations’ struggles against colonialism and apartheid.
International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor says the fight against terrorism in Cabo Delgado remains one of the key priorities within the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
The bi-national commission consists of a number of areas such as defence, economic development, political and diplomatic structure.
Meanwhile, Pretoria and Maputo recently abstained from voting at the United Nations General Assembly on the resolution condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
