The newly sworn-in Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has said the west and the rest of the international community are encouraged to come to Zimbabwe without any security fears as the nation is a safe tourist destination, ZBC News reported on Tuesday.

Tsvangirai said this during a business meeting in central Zimbabwe city Gweru. He said the government is committed to revitalizing the country's lucrative tourism sector, saying they are already persuading the west to lift travel warnings issued against Zimbabwe.

Tsvangirai said Zimbabwe is not at war, therefore there is no reason for the country to be described as an unsafe destination.

The west, especially Britain and Australia, have described Zimbabwe as an unsafe tourist destination, in some instances banning their cricket teams from touring the country.
