Story by Josephine Mugiyo, Diplomatic Correspondent

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has received credentials from three new ambassadors representing Serbia, the Holy See and Denmark.

First to present his letters of credence was the new Serbian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, His Excellency, Mr Radisa Grujic.

He said after shutting down their embassy in Zimbabwe 21 years ago, they are back and keen to cooperate with the country in agriculture and mining, among other areas,

“After 21 years, Serbia decided to come back and we opened two years back and now we want to work on the relations. Our main focus will be on national interests and our main focus will be agriculture and mining,” he said.

Next to present his credentials to President Mnangagwa was the new Holy See representative, Archbishop Janusz Stanislaw Urbanvzyk.

“Relations between the Holy See and Zimbabwe are good. So, being here representing the Pope, I’ll be saying what comes from the Pope. As the Catholic Church we look and work through our organisations based on Zimbabwe, so we will be working closely with them in the health sector and education,” he said.

Her Excellency, Mrs Elsebeth Sondergaard Krone, the new representative of Denmark to Zimbabwe, also presented her credentials, with cooperation in the agricultural sector and environmental issues high on the agenda.

“So, Zimbabwe and Denmark have had good relations for many years, so my role is to strengthen them. Some of the areas that Denmark has good experience in is agriculture, and energy and environment.”

Zimbabwe continues to advance its economic diplomacy thrust to enjoy relations in the family of nations and attract investment.
