President Jacob Zuma will undertake a working visit to Russian, the department of International Relations and Co-operation said on Saturday.

Spokesman Clayson Monyela said Zuma would visit Russia for a week from August 24 to 29.

He said Zuma was scheduled to meet President Vladimir Putin.

"The visit will further strengthen the excellent bilateral relations with a view to consolidating and opening new avenues towards job creation, skills development ,exchange and transfer of technology and trade and investment," said Monyela.

During the bilateral talks the two presidents were expected to assess the state of bilateral co-operation, the status and implementation of Intergovernmental Committee on Trade and Economic Co-operation (ITEC) Agreements, key trade and investment issues.

Monyela said they would also discuss the preparations for the 12th ITEC session to be hosted by South Africa this year.

The two presidents would also focus on developments on critical international issues of mutual concern, including, but not limited to the situation in Syria, and the Israel-Palestine matter, as well as developments in Ukraine, which is Russia's neighbour.

He said ahead of the bilateral meeting, Zuma would from August 25 to 27 hold low key meetings and use the period to rest.

Was this trip really necessary, or was it a way of avoiding Malema's questioning? Why could the president not use Skype or his hotline? I hope it's not about the 8 nuclear reactors they're going to discuss. Nº1 is too rattled to apply his mind at this stage. Do we have a Foreign Minister? Perhaps not good at bargaining.
