Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba says it is unfortunate that some Zambians are using international platforms to dent the good image of the country through false claims of victimisation.
Speaking in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Mr Kabala said government expected all well meaning and patriotic Zambians to use every opportunity at the international stage to advance the country’s interests.
He said it was of no benefit for any citizen to discredit the country that they claimed to love.
“We as a people tend to achieve more by concentrating on that which brings us together, than that which divides us”, Mr Kalaba said.
He noted that individuals were advancing their political agendas by denting the image of the country to the outside world.
Further, Mr Kalaba said government had decided to ignore opposition political parties from other countries that had taken an interest in the political affairs of Zambia.
He said government was aware of some opposition political party in a named SADC country was in the habit of speaking ill about the Zambian Government.
