Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation.
On Friday the South African foreign minister criticised the Israeli occupation of Palestine and said that it reminded her of the era of racial discrimination in her country, news agencies reported.
“The Palestinians’ struggle is our struggle,” international relations minister of South Africa Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said. “The last time I saw the map of Palestine, I could not sleep.”
To show a sign of solidarity with the Palestinians, the minister said that her colleagues in the South African ministerial council would not visit Israel.
