President Jacob Zuma will on Saturday undertake a working visit to Brazzaville, in the Republic of Congo, to take part in the meeting of the African Union (AU) High Level Committee Meeting on Libya.

The Presidency on Thursday said the High Level Committee is chaired by Congolese President Denis Sassou N’Guesso and it includes the Heads of State and Government of Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania, Uganda and South Africa.

"Furthermore, South Africa reiterates the importance of coordinated and harmonised international engagement in Libya.” - SAnews.gov.za
