Zambian President Edgar Lungu on Wednesday held talks with visiting Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn which culminated in the signing of three agreements to enhance bilateral ties.
The three agreements in media and communication, water development and trade were signed after talks held at State House. The two leaders witnessed the signing of the agreements by officials from the two governments, according to state broadcaster, the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation.
The Zambian leader told his guest that the two countries shared common values based on liberty, peace and prosperity and that Zambia was keen to enhance trade with Ethiopia for the benefit of the two peoples.
For his part, the Ethiopian prime minister, who arrived in Zambia on Tuesday afternoon for a three-day visit, said despite the two countries having resilient economies, they have not exploited the full potential in trade.
He said his visit was aimed at revitalizing long standing relations and enhance existing ties between the two countries.
