Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently visited South Africa to prepare for joint naval drills between Russia, South Africa and China. South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Naledi Pandor said that hosting military exercises with ‘friends’ was the ‘natural course of relations’. South Africa has also abstained from no fewer than two United Nations General Assembly resolutions condemning the Russian aggression.[1]

The EU is South Africa’s biggest and most important trade and development partner.
