A delegation of the Chinese Communist Party officials in Harare for a three-day visit at the invitation of the ZANU-PF party of President Robert Mugabe has met with him and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.
The delegation signed a memorandum of understanding on Monday with ZANU-PF Chairman Simon Khaya Moyo and hailed the close ties between the two countries, sources informed on the meeting said.
The delegation headed by Communist Party Vice Chairman Wang Gang exchanged views on the bilateral relationship with the president, the prime minister, and Vice President Joice Mujuru.
ZANU-PF spokesman Rugare Gumbo told VOA Studio 7 reporter Jonga Kandemiiri that the delegation also spoke out strongly against the sanctions which ZANU-PF charges Western nations have illegally imposed.
James Maridadi, spokesman for Mr. Tsvangirai, said delegates praised Mr. Tsvangirai for leading Zimbabwe out of its economic tailspin and working toward national reconciliation of political differences.
