The European Union delegation which was on a two-day visit to Zimbabwe has paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of the National Assembly, Advocate Jacob Mudenda.
The five-member delegation wrapped up its visit with a courtesy call on the Speaker of Parliament, where the European Union’s engagement with Zimbabwe was high on the agenda.
“I have come to the end of my two-day visit to Zimbabwe as the EU Special Representative for Human Rights. In those two days, I have met with think tanks, civil society organisations, government ministries, leaders of main political parties, with representatives of businesses and the Speaker of the National Assembly. In all of those discussions, I have emphasised that this visit is part of the European Union’s constructive engagement with Zimbabwe,” noted the EU special representative, Mr Eamon Gilmore.
The delegation’s visit is in line with the country’s engagement and re-engagement agenda where the second republic has made it clear that Zimbabwe is a friend to all and an enemy to none.
