President Lazarus Chakwera Tuesday used his one-day visit to Mozambique to, among others, discuss with that country’s president Filipe Nyusi the ongoing conflict in the northern part of the former Portuguese colony.
Speaking to journalists on arrival at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA), Chakwera said insecurity in that country poses a threat to Malawi as a neighbouring nation.
“We had an extensive discussion with President Filipe Nyusi, on the war threats in Mozambique. Any insecurity will affect Malawi and one country’s problem is every country’s problem,” Chakwera said.
He said his counterpart is doing everything possible to resolve the conflict.
The Malawi leader indicated that their discussion also touched on the transportation of fertiliser into the country.
He has assured Malawians that the commodity would be in soon.
The two heads of state also discussed to co-chair a bilateral meeting involving delegates from their countries.
Upon arrival at Chingozi International Airport in Tete, the Malawi leader was welcomed by a cross-section of senior government officials.
The trip is a third after his ascendancy to power following the June 23 fresh presidential election.
Chakwera recently travelled to Zambia and Zimbabwe on a similar mission and is expected to visit Tanzania for two days from today.
