Malawi and Tanzania vow to resolve border dispute diplomatically
“Our position is not to do any exploration activities on the lake, because there is a process of resolving the dispute under way,” Salvator Rweyemamu, director of presidential communications in Tanzania, said in an interview on August 8 from Dar es Salaam.
Banda and Kikwete plan to hold further discussions on the issue on August 20 in Malawi. Banda said the country was exploring many avenues to resolve the dispute and doesn’t expect conflict to erupt between the two countries.
Tanzania already holds the second-largest natural-gas reserves in eastern Africa after Mozambique, having discovered about 30 trillion cubic feet of the resource so far.
