Rwanda is finalizing the process of setting up an embassy in Zambia, Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba has said.

Mr Kalaba also said in an interview yesterday that Rwanda Airlines will also establish a direct flight between Kigali and Lusaka.

He said Zambia is ready to receive the embassy and the airline.

“We are waiting for our colleagues in Rwanda to finalise the process. In fact, the airline is good for business between the two countries,” he said.

Mr Kalaba said as soon as preparations are over, Rwanda will open its embassy in Zambia.

Meanwhile, Turkey is also planning to establish an airline in Zambia.

Mr Kalaba said discussions have advanced and “very soon”, there will be flow of air traffic between Lusaka and Kigali.

“We will now be connected with the other side of Europe and this is good for trade,” Mr Kalaba said.
