Botswana: Botswana, Zambia cement bilateral relations

Gaborone, Botswana (PANA) - Zambia’s president Edgar Lungu is scheduled to visit Botswana’s President Ian Khama on Monday to strengthen relations between the two countries.

“The visit will afford the two leaders the opportunity to explore ways and means of deepening political and economic cooperation between the two sister countries,” a communiqué from the Botswana Presidency said.

Botswana and Zambia established diplomatic relations in 1966 and have continued to enjoy strong bonds of friendship and cooperation ‘underpinned by strong historical ties’, it said.

Lungu will conclude his visit on 7 February after bilateral talks in Botswana’s resort town of Kasane.

Kasane is close to Africa's 'Four Corners', where four countries meet - Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
