2. SOUNDBITE (French) Francois Hollande, President of France:
"I was perfectly clear. The Brexit will have no impact on the relations between the European Union and South Africa. On the contrary, we are going to strengthen our commercial relations, in order for South Africa to be a key partner for Europe, including within regional organisations such as the SADC (Southern African Development Community)."

4. SOUNDBITE (French) Francois Hollande, President of France:
"President Zuma will travel to the Somme region to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Delville Wood that saw many South Africans die during the First World War. France will never forget the courage and sacrifice of the South African soldiers. This is why it was very important that, for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Delville Wood, there is a Memorial to mark this story, this sacrifice and the link between South Africa and France. Thank you President."

"We agreed that the so-called Brexit holds implications well beyond the borders of the UK and the member states of the EU. We further reinforced our joint commitment to strengthening cooperation on regional and global peace and security as well as global governance issues."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa:
"The commemoration of the Battle of Delville Wood is of special significance to us. We will use the occasion to correct one of the key injustices of the past in our country. The South African Delville Wood Memorial has been transformed in order to ensure that the historical role played by Black South Africans in the First and Second World Wars is accorded the necessary recognition as that given to White South Africans."

Relations between the European Union and South Africa will not be impacted by "Brexit," the French President said on Monday.
Hollande made the comments during a news conference with his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma.
Both leaders also vowed to strengthen the economic ties between the European Union and South Africa.
The two men will meet again on Tuesday in the Somme region, north of Paris, for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Delville Wood during the First World War, where more than 1,000 South African soldiers died.
Ahead of the commemoration, Zuma also insisted the "South African Delville Wood Memorial" came as a necessary reminder of the sacrifice of Black South Africans in the First and Second World Wars.
