In a bid to creating a good multilateral relationship with its neighboring countries, the Malawi leader continues engaging high level meetings with fellow presidents from neighboring countries with the latest being Zimbabwe.
On Sunday afternoon, Malawi President through his foreign affairs Minister Eisenhower Mkaka discussed with Zimbabwean President some bilateral matters through Zimbabwean Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Hon Dr LtGen (Rtd) Sibusiso Moyo in capital Halare owing to the long history the two countries share.
The bilateral talks also based much on how the two countries can work together roping in Zambia for a multilateral relationship that will see the three countries enjoying a multilateral trade.
Speaking to Afriem after the meeting in Halare, Mkaka hinted that his counterpart Moyo positively welcomed his proposal of a tripartite economic relationship involving Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi (the former Federation) .
“We will be pursuing this further (involving the three countries) for the betterment of the three nations considering that this relationship was already there but this time around, we will simply bring in better ways of managing this tie for positive returns.” Mkaka added.
The Malawi leader started mending good relationships with his neighbors in a quest for the enhancement of coexistence among SADC countries in particular and Africa in general and he started his tours to these neighboring countries last week with a one day working visit to Zambia.
Chakwera is expected to fly to Zimbabwe this Wednesday for a two day working visit where he is expected to cement what his Foreign Minister Mkaka and his counterpart Zimbabwe minister Moyo have discussed in the discussions he is going to hold together with Zimbabwe president Emmerson M’nangagwa.
