MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 22nd November, 2018)
South Africa is willing to renew discussions on a nuclear deal with Russia, once the legal issues relevant to the agreement have been resolved, South African Foreign Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said at a press conference in Moscow on Thursday.
Last year, a court in Cape Town ruled that the 2014 agreement on nuclear reactors cooperation between Russia and South Africa was unlawful as it should have been put before the South African parliament for approval.
“That is something [where] I would much rather wait after the court case itself is over.
That is a legal issue that we need to observe right now … Once that is over we will be back to discussing the matter [of a nuclear deal],” Sisulu said when asked about the two countries’ nuclear cooperation.
Sisulu added that nuclear cooperation was not on the agenda during her talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday.
South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa said in July that a nuclear deal with Russia was not on the table for his country at the moment due to financial problems
