Pandor, Blinken to discuss US ambassador’s arms sales claims
South Africa’s International Relations Minister, Naledi Pandor, plans to phone with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to discuss US Ambassador to South Africa Reuben Brigety’s claims that South Africa sold weapons to Russia as reported by Eyewitness News.
Brigety made the comments during a media briefing, but sources say Pandor was not pleased with them and will seek clarity from the White House.
