Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba has refuted reports that President Edgar Lungu has snubbed an envoy of United States of America President Barrack Obama.
Mr. Kalaba also says his Ministry has not received any formal complaint from the United States Embassy that President Lungu has snubbed the American envoy.
Mr. Kalaba was speaking in an interview with journalists at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport shortly before President Lungu’s departure for Uganda.
He said any diplomat who fails to access President Lungu is free to approach the Ministry of Foreign affairs to be scheduled to fit into the President’s programme.
Meanwhile Mr Kalaba says Zambia’s International Image is still intact despite the closure of the Post Newspaper.
He has reiterated that government did not influence the closure of the daily tabloid as the Zambia Revenue Authority -ZRA acted independently to enforce its obligation of collecting tax.
