SOUTH AFRICA, UGANDAN PRESIDENT DISCUSS AFRICAN SECURITY ISSUES

South African President Jacob Zuma briefly held talks here Monday with his visiting Ugandan counterpart, President Yoweri Museveni, at the Presidential Guesthouse in Pretoria.

During their one-hour meeting, the two Heads of State discussed security concerns on the continent. President Zuma described the meeting as successful.

South African Defence Minister Nosiviwe Nqakula-Mapisa was also present at the meeting.

"His Excellency President Museveni has just left. We have just finished a meeting; it is a consultation," said President Zuma.

"President Museveni and myself were appointed by a group of heads of states (of countries) which are volunteering countries to the AU ACIRC , the Rapid Response Force for the African Union (AU), so that if there are problems of security we need a capacity to be able to handle that as a way of following what we say. We need African solutions to African problems, a kind of capacity which we as volunteering countries will take care of."
