JOHANNESBURG - President Jacob Zuma says his Liberian counterpart’s visit to the country has afforded the two nations an opportunity to review a wide range of bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.

Zuma met with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the Union Buildings on Friday afternoon.

He says South Africa and Liberia will continue to work together on multilateral levels in order to address matters affecting the continent, such as terrorism and extremism.

“We have agreed to deepen cooperation between our countries across a number of fields and take these relations to a higher level.”

President Zumas says Sirleaf, who is the first female president on the continent, visits South Africa at a crucial time as the country is celebrating Women’s Month.

“Your visit could not have come at an opportune time when we celebrate the achievements and contribution of the women in South Africa in realising our freedom and progress made to date, in August as part of Women’s Month.”
