Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma and Botswana President Ian Khama urged their respective ministers on Thursday to fight drug trafficking and rhino poaching.

"Ministers responsible for defence, justice and security in the two countries were urged to intensify efforts to combat drug trafficking and poaching of animals such as elephants and rhinos, which are on the rise," the two countries said in a joint statement.

Zuma was concluding a two-day visit to Botswana. He was accompanied by seven government ministers and business leaders.

The two heads of state signed agreements to "cement bilateral relations".

Issues such as immigration, defence and security, energy, trade, transport, and the environment were discussed.
