South Africans should embrace one another as well as foreign nationals, President Cyril Ramaphosa has told the National Council of Provinces (NCOP).

He was answering questions in the NCOP on Thursday, with the first question on the agenda dealing with South Africa's border management concerning the recent xenophobic attacks.
