Deputy Minister Landers was speaking on Tuesday following the 6th South African-Switzerland High Level Consultations (HLC), which he co-chaired with his Swiss counterpart, State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Yves Rossier.
The Deputy Minister said the commitment will see the two countries intensifying cooperation at different levels.
He said they both acknowledged the good trade relations the two countries have and the positive impact this has on job creation. They also recognise the importance of increasing South Africa’s exports to Switzerland.
“Together with my colleague, we have also exchanged views on the development of Africa, with specific reference to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia and South Sudan.
“We further affirmed our wish for peaceful solutions of conflict ridden areas like Syria and Ukraine, and hope that normality will prevail for the people of these countries to enjoy a better life,” he said.
