Russian President Vladimir Putin has agreed to deepen ties with South African leader Cyril Ramaphosa, the Kremlin said Friday, after the United States accused Pretoria of secretly shipping arms to Russia.

The two “expressed their intentions to further intensify mutually beneficial ties in various fields,” the Kremlin said in a statement following a call between the two leaders.

Meanwhile the U.S. ambassador to South Africa earlier accused South Africa of covertly providing weapons and ammunition to Russia via a cargo ship.
