Namibia and Zimbabwe have called for the strengthening and deepening of cooperation between the two countries for the mutual benefit of their people.
The call was made by the two countries' ministers responsible for international relations during the opening of the Namibia-Zimbabwe Joint Commission of Co-operation meeting in Windhoek Wednesday.
Namibia's International Relations and Cooperation Minister, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah says the two neighbouring countries have good mutual co-operation in areas such as trade, education, culture, transport, health and human resources development.
Nandi-Ndaitwah singled out tourism, extraction and telecommunication as other potential areas which Namibia and Zimbabwe can embark on.
She further appealed for the two countries to continue calling for the UN Security Council reform and the freedom of Western Saharawi.
Her Zimbabwean counterpart Lieutenant General (retired) Sibusiso Moyo shared the same sentiment and called for co-operation in the areas of aviation and energy as well as creating conducive environment for trade and investment.
Namibia and Zimbabwe are expected to sign seven memoranda of understanding on Friday in the presence of the two countries' presidents.
