OUTGOING Palestinian Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Her Excellency Taghrid Senouar this Thursday paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Retired Lieutenant General Sibusiso Moyo to bid farewell after four years of serving in Zimbabwe.
Speaking after the meeting, Her Excellency Senouar said the discussion was centered on how the two countries can strengthen their excellent relations through skills transfer and increased cooperation on the media front.
“It has been an honor to represent and serve Palestine in Harare. I just want to thank the Zimbabwean government for all the support they have given me for the past four years I have been here. With the Minister, we spoke about the horizons of cooperation and how to deepen the already excellent relations between the two countries. There has been a notable deepening of relations on the media front and we are looking forward to developing this cooperation in other areas,” said Her Excellency Senouar.
Zimbabwe and Palestine enjoy cordial relations and last year, the Palestinian International Cooperation Agency (PICA) facilitated the training of ZBC journalists by media experts from an Asian country.
She also confirmed having briefed Minister Moyo on Palestine’s position in light of the United States’ infringement of the country’s sovereignty.
“To put the honorable Minister in light of what’s happening in Palestine on the political letting him know the full rejection of the Israel-Palestinian peace package which was announced on Tuesday as it is a one-sided deal that is in contravention and contradiction of international law and all the agreements which were between the two countries. The US should have been the broker because it violates and it does not go inline with the creation of a Palestinian independent state,” she said.
The U.S President Donald Trump unveiled his long-delayed Middle East plan on Tuesday – a proposal Palestinian leaders called a “conspiracy” that “will not pass”.
Palestinians have called it dead on arrival, saying it was an attempt to “finish off” the Palestinian cause.
