Zimbabwe and Pakistan have pledged to work together to fight poverty through developing trade relations between the two countries.

Speaking to journalists on Thursday after a closed-door meeting with Vice President, Joyce Mujuru, the Pakistan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Riffat Iqbal said there was need to cement trade relations between the two countries in an effort to fight poverty.

"The two countries have agreed to strongly work together through enhancing trade development in an effort to fight poverty, " Ambassador Iqbal said.

The meeting also focused on challenges facing the two countries whose relations he described as excellent.

Relations between Pakistan and Zimbabwe date back to the early years of independence when Pakistan supported the southern African nation by providing it with army machinery and helping rebuild the Gweru airbase which was destroyed during the liberation struggle.
