U.S. President Biden and South Africa's President Ramaphosa hold talks at the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Friday he wanted to discuss climate change and fears related to energy transition in his talk with U.S. President Joe Biden.

A U.S. official said earlier that Biden, from his side, will discuss efforts to end the war in Ukraine with Ramaphosa, who has avoided condemning Russia, when the two leaders meet at the White House on Friday.
