Johannesburg - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit South Africa in August, the department of international relations said on Sunday.

Clinton and International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane would hold the SA/US strategic dialogue on 7 August, said spokesperson Clayson Monyela.

"It is expected that the meeting will discuss a range of issues of mutual interest," he said in a statement.

Monyela said the bilateral relations between South Africa and the US were strong and that the US administration was interested in partnering with South Africa domestically and regionally.

"High-level visits... by Vice President Joe Biden to South Africa in 2010 and the reciprocal visit by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe in 2011 to the US, highlight the close relations between the two countries," he said.

Monyela said the US continued to support South Africa's domestic priorities and wanted to align its assistance programmes and projects to South Africa's national priorities.

The US is currently South Africa's third largest trading partner, and is a significant investor.
