The governments of Mozambique and South Africa are soon to sign an agreement on the fight against poaching, according to the Mozambique News Agency on Sunday.
The report said that the deal should have been signed a year and a half ago, but Maputo postponed it for unknown reasons.
South African minister of environment Edna Molewa said the deal is crucial for the joint fight against rhino poaching in particular and to preserve the trans-national conservation among South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe, called the Great Limpopo Trasnfrontier Park.
The development came after the Mozambican wildlife authorities in April announced that the last 15 rhinos in the Mozambican territory of the trans-national conservation were wiped out by illegal poaching.
Meanwhile, the South African government has recently announced a plan to build a fence along its borders with Mozambique to curb poaching.
