Zuma: Learn from South Africa
Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma received a standing applause in Washington DC after suggesting Israel and Palestine should take advice from South Africa about resolving their violent conflict.
Zuma told the National Press Club in the city, where the US-Africa Leaders summit is under way, that South Africa would not expel Israel’s ambassador Arthur Lenk in the wake of the conflict between Palestine and Israel.
“There was a demonstration in South Africa where the call was made,” he said, adding that South Africa was a free country and people were free to demonstrate to show how they felt.
“[Expelling] an ambassador is not going to solve anything,” he said.
