In an interview with The Herald yesterday, Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade chairperson Kindness Paradza said they are planning to meet members of the United States Congress and the European Union to discuss the removal of sanctions as part of its re-engagement drive.
Paradza said they are going to assist the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in re-engagement programmes. Said Paradza:
Foreign Affairs is the face of Zimbabwe and we have been given an additional mandate which is international trade. So, what we are going to do this session is to assist the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in re-engagement programmes, as well as bringing in foreign direct investment through international trade and expanding our exports so that we bring in foreign currency. So, that is our major thrust and also the removal of sanctions. My committee is going to engage Congress, the US through their external foreign affairs committee at Congress including the European Union so that we deal with these issues and Zdera as well.
