PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe, who is attending the United Nations general assembly meeting in New York, yesterday (MONDAY) held a one hour meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The meeting, was closed to the media.
The two presidents, who appear to be the odd ones out at a meeting where issues related to HIV and Aids and global warming are set to take the centre stage, are attending the summit amid concerns that they are the world’s worst respecters of human rights.
Iran is involved in a diplomatic war with the United States of America over its nuclear enrichment programme, while Zimbabwe is on the wrong side of the law in terms of respect for human rights, good governance and respect for the rule of the law.
Mugabe is scheduled to address the UN today (WEDNESDAY).
According to Zimbabwe's U.N. ambassador, Boniface Chidyausiku, Mugabe will make the case to the assembly that the U.S. Zimbabwe Democracy Act has prevented international institutions and private investors from bringing capital to Zimbabwe.
Ummm...isn't having people invest money in your country a good thing?
