Lusaka –President Lazarus Chakwera has underscored the need for Malawi and Zambia to peacefully co-exist and foster mutual economic development.

Speaking in Lusaka on Tuesday during his inaugural visit to Zambia where he held talks with President Edgar Lungu, President Chakwera called for enhanced bilateral relations.

“What troubles one (nation) troubles the other,” said President Chakwera. “I’m looking forward to working with you and the people of this nation despite the problems we face now, of course we have COVID-19, but Zambia has always been our friend even when we have had disasters in our country. In our region we want economic prosperity, we want industrialisation, we want our livelihoods changed.”

Describing Zambia as his second home, President Chakwera thanked the government and people of Zambia for their support for Malawi.

President Lungu congratulated his Malawian counterpart for his victory in the June 28 election rerun, adding that the bilateral engagement would serve to bolster ties between their two nations.

“And this is indeed historical but apart from it being historical, I think it emphasises a lot of things about how close the Zambian and the Malawian people across the borders are. This is a clear demonstration of a strong relationship which exists between Zambia and Malawi and I feel excited,” President Lungu says.
