President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe on Thursday visited Ground Zero, the site of the deadly terror attacks in New York on September 11, 2001.

Mr. Mnangagwa made the visit after addressing the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday.

“Before departing New York, I took some time to visit Ground Zero and pay my respects to those who lost their lives in the tragic terror attacks of September 11th, 2001. Humanity must forever stand as one in the face of such evil,” Mnangagwa tweeted.

In his address to the 74th session of the United Nations, he said he “outlined the comprehensive reforms we are enacting for the benefit, protection & prosperity of our people”.

According to him, “the impact of these changes takes time but we are going in the right direction. Our people deserve better & we are committed to delivering”.

He said his government was “engaging with the international community as we return Zimbabwe to its rightful place in the family of nations. Our arms remain outstretched with a genuine heart of friendship and cooperation to all those willing to join us in our journey of national rebirth”.

“These efforts are spite of the sanctions we continue to face. Sanctions are slowing down our progress, inhibiting our economic recovery and punishing the most vulnerable. Zimbabwe deserves a new start. Sanctions are a lose-lose game. Co-operation is a win-win”

“I urge the world to be patient with us, support us and join us on this new and exciting journey. Together we will realise our common vision of a future free of poverty, hunger and conflict, on a safe planet, for the benefit of all our people”.
