MEDIA RELEASE


DLAMINI-ZUMA TO MEET DRC COUNTERPART

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY MALIZOLE DIKO,
UDM NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON

The UDM notes that the Minister of Foreign Affairs is scheduled to meet with her counterpart in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We express the hope that the Minister's talks with the DRC government will not be a one-sided affair. It is of great importance that all the role-players in the conflict are treated equally to dispel the fears of some role-players in the conflict that the South African government is taking sides.

Establishing equal communication with all the role-players is vital for South Africa if we are to regain our image of impartiality and credibility as a mediator in the conflict.
