Equatorial Guinea leader on four-day visit to Zimbabwe

Posted by African Press International on August 30, 2007

Harare (Zimbabwe) Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo is in Zimbabwe for a four-day visit during which he will officially open a trade exhibition on Friday in the capital Harare.

Mbasogo and his delegation arrived in the Zimbabwean capital, Harare, late on Tuesday.

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe said he was confident of the growing friendship between the two countries.

During the visit, the Equatorial Guinea leader is expected to explore new areas of cooperation following the signing of an agreement on agriculture in May 2006.

Mbasogo will open the Harare Agricultural Show, an annual exhibition of Zimbabwean and foreign products.

Relations between Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea have improved since the 2004 sensational arrest of suspected mercenaries in Harare who were on their way to stage a coup detat in Equatorial Guinea.

The trial of the ring leader of the mercenaries, British national Simon Mann, is still before Zimbabwean courts after he contested an earlier court decision to extradite him to Equatorial Guinea.
