In her final address of the Nordic – Africa Foreign Ministers meeting held in Denmark this week, South African Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma said that the conference was a great success.
“The meetings were very frank, very open, very candid. That is what is good about these meetings,” said Dlamini Zuma.

Dlamini Zuma, accompanied by Foreign Affairs Director General, Dr. Ayanda Ntsaluba, South Africa’s Ambassador to Denmark, Dolana Msimang and senior government officials, attended the 8th Informal Session of the two day meeting in Copenhagen.

Dlamini Zuma said that even though there was anxiety about whether the conference would produce the proper out come and whether all parities would reach a consensus on certain issues, the feedback was positive.
“I think the general feeling was that once we sit down and really exchange views through dialogue, we would be able to reach a consensus,” she said.

Amongst others, topics addressed included the climate change conference, that will be hosted by Denmark and the Durban review conference, to be held in Geneva.
