Statement of the High Representative/ Vice-President Federica Mogherini on the election of Cyril Ramaphosa in South Africa
Today, Cyril Ramaphosa was sworn in as President of South Africa. The democratic transition of leadership has clearly illustrated the strength of South Africa's institutions, its constitutional system and political landscape. The EU-South Africa Strategic Partnership is based on common interests and values and is instrumental in addressing the range of common challenges, at bilateral, regional and global level. I look forward to working closely with the new President and to enhancing further our long standing partnership for the years to come.
