Tifariti (Sahrawi Liberated Territories), May 20, 2018 (SPS)
The President of the Republic received, on Sunday in the liberated town of Tifariti, the new Ambassador Edwin George Mandaza, who handed him copies of his credentials as Ambassador of the Republic of Zimbabwe to the SADR.
This is the third ambassador to present his credentials in the liberated Sahrawi territories after the ambassadors of Namibia and Cuba who presented their letters last March.
The Zimbabwean ambassador told reporters that his country maintains “strong historical relations with the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic” and added that these relations “can not be affected by anything.”
“Despite the distance between our two countries, the struggle for freedom and independence remains a principle that we have adopted for a long time,” said Mr. Mandaza, reiterating Zimbabwe’s support for the Polisario Front in its fight against the ocupation.
