January 30, 2014
Kuwait ambassador to Zimbabwe Ahmed Al Jeeran and his Saharawi counterpart Mohamed Cheij Saleh today paid courtesy calls on Acting President Cde Joice Mujuru at her Munhumutapa Offices. The two envoys conveyed messages of solidarity and commitment of their Governments to work with Harare.
First to meet Acting President Mujuru was Ambassador Al Jeeran who hailed the sound relations between Harare and Kuwait City.
Speaking to journalists after a closed door meeting with Cde Mujuru, Ambassador Al Jeeran said he wanted to strengthen ties between the two countries during his tour of duty.
Ambassador Al Jeeran said he was confident that Zimbabwe would successfully implement its new economic blue print, the Zimbabwe Agenda for Socio-Economic Transformation.
“We talked about the relations between Kuwait and Zimbabwe.Kuwait is keen to assist Zimbabwe to succeed and we are confident that Zim Asset will be a success,” he said.
Ambassador Saleh said he briefed Cde Mujuru on the continued occupation of Saharawi by Morocco.
He said Morocco was reneging on its obligations agreed under the auspices of the African Union and the United Nations.
“I had the honour to be received by the Acting President and I conveyed to her the gratitude of the Saharawi President and to the people of Zimbabwe,” he said.
“I informed her about the recent developments on colonisation of Saharawi which is the last colony in Africa. Morocco continued its brutal and repressive practices on Saharawi civilians for the demand of application of the Charter of the United Nations,” he said.
He said Morocco continued to plunder Saharawi’s natural resources.
Ambassador Saleh said in response Cde Mujuru said Harare would continue to support Saharawi to attain total independence.
Ambassador Saleh said victory was certain for Saharawi.
Saharawi is an AU member and its sovereign status is recognised by more than 80 countries worldwide.
