Political and economic situation in Zimbabwe has improved- Tsvangirai

Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai stresses a point during his meeting with President RawlingsMr Morgan Tsvangirai, the Zimbabwean Prime Minister, has said the political and economic situation in Zimbabwe has improved since the establishment of a unity government following disputed elections in 2008.

A statement copied to the GNA said, Mr Tsvangirai said this during a meeting with former President Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings in Seoul, South Korea, where both leaders are attending the World Peace Summit of the United Peace Federation.

The Zimbabwean Prime Minister said his relations with President Mugabe had improved and that there was civil discourse between the two.

Mr Tsvangirai said even though there was significant political and economic improvement in Zimbabwe, the international media was only keen on reporting the negative news about his country.

He said the economy had grown nine per cent over the past two years and this showed that his country is moving in a positive direction adding that he did not foresee any trouble as Zimbabwe moves towards a new election later this year.

The former President Rawlings commended Mr Tsvangirai for working towards a peaceful political climate in Zimbabwe and described the 2012 elections in Ghana as peaceful.

He appealed to political leaders to engage in constructive criticism so that Africa could make meaningful progress. GNA
