Zambia, Zimbabwe sign border deal

Zimbabwe and Zambia on Tuesday signed four bilateral agreements aimed at boosting cooperation between the two neighbouring countries.

The agreements were signed following the visit by Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa who is in Zambia to grace the country’s 54th independence anniversary.

The four agreements include one about the cooperation on the establishment and implementation of a one-stop border post at Victoria Falls, one on collaboration on the management and preservation of Zimbabwe liberation war grave sites and one on cultural exchange, according to Zambia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji.

He told reporters after the signing ceremony held at State House that the fourth agreement is on gender equity and equality and women empowerment, adding that the signing of the negotiations was due to a joint permanent commission existing between the two countries.

The Zimbabwean leader arrived at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka, the Zambian capital on Tuesday afternoon and was received by his host President Edgar Lungu.
