Malawi, Tanzania Seek Mediation Over Border Dispute

Malawi, Tanzania Seek Mediation Over Border Dispute

Foreign ministers of the two countries are scheduled to meet former Mozambican President Joaquim Chissano, chairman of the forum, on Friday as part of a regional effort to resolve the border impasse.

“We have reached a point where we said that we cannot solve the problem of dispute between the two of us,” said Patrick Kabambe, permanent secretary at Malawi’s foreign affairs ministry. “So, we had agreed to involve a third party and the third party identified was the forum for former presidents of Southern Africa.”

“The two foreign ministers will put in a request today for the forum to mediate the dispute between the two countries,” he added.
