DEMOCRATIC People’s Republic of Korea  Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon on Saturday sent a congratulatory message to Frederick Musiiwa Makamure Shava upon his appointment as minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade of the Republic of Zimbabwe.

Shava is a long-time ally of President Emmerson Mnangagwa who has fifteen years of diplomatic experience representing Zimbabwe in China and most recently at the United Nations.

Expressing belief that the historic and traditional relations of friendship and cooperation between the two countries would continue to grow strong, the North Korean message wished the Zimbabwean minister success in his work for the development of foreign relations of the country.

Shava replaces Sibusiso Busi Moyo, who passed on last month after contracting COVID-19.
