Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has left South Africa for Ethiopia.

During his three-day visit to South Africa, Davutoglu met South African President Jacob Zuma, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and Minister of International Relations & Cooperation Maite Nkoana-Mashabane. Besides Turkey-South Africa relations, recent developments in Syria and Libya were high on agenda of Davutoglu's talks with South African authorities.

Prior to his departure from South Africa, Davutoglu had a telephone conversation with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store. The two foreign ministers exchanged views on recent developments in Libya.

In Ethiopia, Davutoglu will hold talks with his Ethiopian counterpart.

He is also set to meet Jean Ping, chairperson of the Commission of the African Union.

Famine and drought in the Horn of Africa will top Davutoglu's agenda in Ethiopia.
