The Inkatha Freedom Party joined various opposition parties in Cape Town today to meet with a visiting delegation of members from the Israeli Knesset.
IFP Parliamentary Caucus Chairperson, Professor CT Msimang MP, and Mr Jan Esterhuizen MP were accompanied by IFP Law Adviser, Advocate Anthony Mitchell, and by Mr Cyril Kern, a long-time friend of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
Said Prof. CT Msimang, “It was a pleasure to welcome and meet with our colleagues from the Knesset and to interact with them on the most pressing issues, not only in Israel, but also here in South Africa. We engaged a frank and intense dialogue.”
“We also had the pleasure of welcoming the new Israeli Ambassador to South Africa, His Excellency, Lior Keinan. We look forward to continuing a conversation with the Ambassador and with our colleagues in the Knesset, as the IFP believes in keeping the doors of dialogue open.”
“The IFP maintains that solutions can only be achieved through constructive and peaceful engagement on both sides, and that a two state solution should continue to be pursued.”
