President Emmerson Mnangagwa says relations between Zimbabwe and the USA are set to improve following the visit by five American senators who met him at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare this afternoon.
The meeting lasted about two and half hours with the need for collaboration between the two countries dominating the discussions.
The delegation is led by Senator Christopher Coons and also comprises Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, Senator Michael Bennett of Colorado and Senator Garry Peters of Michigan.
Speaking after the meeting, President Mnangagwa appealed to journalists to report factually about events, saying relations between Zimbabwe and USA were mostly affected by bad reporting.
“Our relations with America were mostly poisoned by bad reportage,” said Cde Mnangagwa, adding that in the new political dispensation, both Zimbabwe and America are focused on how best they can improve relations.
Senator Coons said they are looking forward to open wider relations as Zimbabwe heads to elections and they are keen to see the country holding free, fair and credible polls.
