S. Africa President’s Trip Postponed

South African President Jacob Zuma has postponed his visit to Iran, the presidency announced on Wednesday.
“South Africa is working on new dates with the Islamic Republic of Iran and South Africa also looks forward to the state visit, which will take relations between the two countries to a higher level,” spokesperson Bongani Majola said in a statement.
It was announced earlier this week that Zuma would visit Iran on February 28 and 29 to strengthen ties between the two countries, News24 reported.
The growing number of high-level visits to Tehran comes against the backdrop of a new wave of interest in ties with Iran after the country and world powers on July 14, 2015, reached a comprehensive deal on Tehran’s nuclear program and implemented the agreement on January 16.
The nuclear deal between Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) terminated all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran. Experts believe Iran’s economic growth will rise remarkably, thanks to the lifting of sanctions that has helped increase foreign trade.
