U.S. President Donald Trump and his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma Monday agreed to strengthen bilateral relations and work together to address peace and stability on the African continent.

“The two presidents reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening the already strong bilateral relations between the two countries,” according to a statement issued by Zuma’s office.

The statement added that there are currently 600 U.S. companies operating in South Africa, which enjoys strong trade relations with the United States.

Trump has caused anxiety with many U.S. trading partners over pledges to renegotiate trade deals to put “America first”.

“The two presidents also discussed the need to work together on multilateral issues as well, especially the quest for peace and stability on the African continent,” said the statement.

Zuma also congratulated Trump on his being elected president.
