08:25, July 03, 2012

HARARE, July 2 (Xinhua) -- China Central Television (CCTV) on Monday signed with the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) a Memorandum of Understanding on the transmission of CCTV news programs in a move aimed at strengthening relations between the two national broadcasters.

The MoU was signed between ZBC Group Chief Executive Officer Happison Muchechetere and CCTV Editor in Chief and Vice President Luo Ming. Present at the event were Cai Fuchao, head of the visiting Chinese delegation and Vice Minister of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, and Zimbabwe's Media, Information and Publicity Minister Webster Shamu.

Under the agreement, ZBC will air CCTV news programs.

Shamu said Zimbabwe and China share strong relations and that the two countries will continue to work together to counter imperialism.

Earlier on, the visiting Chinese delegation paid a courtesy call on Zanu PF National Chairman Simon Khaya Moyo, who said the two countries should work together to restore Zimbabwe's good image which was tarnished by Western propaganda.

Cai told Moyo that no country should be allowed to interfere in another country's internal affairs. He said China fully supports Zimbabwe and respects its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Relations between Zimbabwe and China continue to strengthen under Zimbabwe's Look East Policy which has seen the Asian giant assisting the country in many sectors.
