The Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Ms Nomaindiya Mfeketo, will pay an official visit to two Central Asian countries, Kazakhstan, from 9 to 13 November 2016, and Turkmenistan from 14 to 15 November 2016. Whilst Deputy Minister Mfeketo has visited Kazakhstan previously, it will be the first visit by a South African Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation to Turkmenistan since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1992.
Deputy Minister Mfeketo’s first stop on her Central Asian tour will be Astana, capital city of Kazakhstan. The visit to the Central Asian country, which will also include a brief stop-over in Almaty, the commercial hub of Kazakhstan, is aimed at strengthening bilateral and economic relations between South Africa and Kazakhstan.
