Nyusi says government is aware of attacks in the centre of the country - report
The High Commission of the Republic of Malawi in Mozambique would like to respond to the media article that appeared in Noticias Newspaper of 19th September, 2019 titled I quote ‘’Porto de Nsanje é assunto encerrado.’’
The paper features the sentiments on the Nsanje World Inland Port made by President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, President of the Republic of Malawi during one of the public rallies in Nsanje, and the comments made by Mr. Horário Parquinio, Head of Department of Bilateral Cooperation in the Ministry of Transport and Communication who informed the media that Mozambique is not in talks and has nothing more to discuss with Malawi in respect to the Nsanje Port Project.
As a Representative of the Government of Malawi in Mozambique, I would like to inform the Press that we do not regard the article in the newspaper as the official position of the Government of Mozambique. The two Governments are in talks at the highest level and not at department level and all diplomatic channels are open and functional.
The Mission further wishes to inform the press that the people of the two Countries along the said project, share a lot in common. You may therefore wish to appreciate that our people share same languages, traditions, norms and practices, dynamic in the social-economic activities and even the same names. Hence, therefore, denying the people of Malawi development is as good as denying Mozambicans development on the same, in the interest of SADC Regional Integration.
Therefore and once again the Media should be informed that we do not take the contents of this article as the official position of the Government of Mozambique because there are a lot of programs and projects that the two Countries cooperate through Diplomatic Channels for the benefit of the people of the two Countries.
