Bhubaneswar: Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik Tuesday releases Dr. Gopabandhu Dash’s book “Dynamics of Indo- South African Cooperation in the Changing World”.

Dr. Dash in well researched book has explored the ancient and intense relationship between two countries. The fight against colonialism has made their relationship closure. The political journey of Mahatma Gandhi had started from South Africa.

After the end of racism both the countries are working cooperation in international platforms like NAM, G-7 and BRICS since 1994. Recently, the two counties are working against Covid-19 pandemic.

In the current changed situation of cosmopolitanism and nativism, lot of opportunities have come for the two countries and this would take the Indo-South African relationship to a new height, expected the author Dr. Dash.
