Rwanda and Zambia leaders have agreed to further strengthen the existing cordial relations and regional integration in finding solutions to recurrent issues instead of waiting for the third party.
President Lungu is on a two-day visit to Rwanda, the second in six months following the inauguration of President Kagame in August last year where he was in attendance.
“Rwandans and Zambians are now more connected than ever before,” Kagame said adding that the friendship makes sense because both countries share a lot in common.
“We have similar aspirations, of prosperity and dignity for our people, and a common vision for our continent,” he said.
In his speech, President Lungu said his visit to Rwanda was an opportunity for the two countries to look forward to lasting solutions to the continent’s problems.
He said that Africa continues to receive the worst perception globally and that it is up to Africans to come together and find lasting solutions to it.
“At global level, the African continent and its people continue to receive negative perception as evidence by the discussion of issue on migration in particular,” Lungu said.
“Such negative perceptions perpetrated against our continent call for an urgent need for us Africans to unite as brothers and sisters under common interests of mutual benefits in order to address the challenges that we face as people,” he said.
Foreign Affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said the two countries will today, during President Lungu’s day two of the visit, sign several agreements especially in trade and legal affairs as it was writen by local newspaper KT Press.
