Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu has thanked Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa for his help in resolving the border issue between Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

President Lungu on Monday said President Mnangagwa took personal interest in the matter when he served as Chairperson of the SADC Troika on Peace, Politics and Security Co-operation.

Zambia’s leader said this during the 40th Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government.

Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji said SADC had ratified the 1989 border treaty between Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Minister Malanji said the process of putting up beacons to mark borders will soon be undertaken, saying both Zambia and the DRC had shown willingness to provide resources for the exercise.

He told journalists that the Zambian government had formally thanked Zimbabwe for presiding over the matter when it served as the Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security. – Lusaka Times
