The newly established permanent secretariat of the Africa-South America Summit would streamline the summit's work and align it with that of the African Union, The Presidency said yesterday.

The Presidency said President Jacob Zuma wrapped up a working visit to Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, on Saturday.

"The historical reality is that these countries [in South America] were under Spain, whereas in Africa only one country was colonised by Spain, but the working principle is South-South relations and the development of both regions," The Presidency said.

It said the Brics bloc - Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa - would meet in Africa for the first time, in Durban next month.

"And the significance must not be lost to the rest of Africa, thus an opportunity for the whole of Africa to benefit, hence the invitation to other representatives of African regions."
