Zimbabwe's PM to Attend Cabinet Meeting in Sign of Reconciliation
HARARE, November 10 (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai confirmed on Tuesday that he will attend a Cabinet meeting due on Wednesday following his party's decision to end its boycott of the meetings.

    Tsvangirai told journalists that he is committed to the success of the inclusive government, stressing the importance of resolving all outstanding issues in the Global Political Agreement(GPA).

    "Cabinet is there tomorrow and I will be attending in line with the decision we took, which allows this process to move forward," he said.

    The larger of the two MDC factions led by Tsvangirai, which had been boycotting cabinet and council of ministers meetings since October 16, citing unfulfilled promises by President Robert Mugabe and his Zanu-PF party, announced at the end of a SADC troika summit in Maputo last week that it is calling off the boycott.

    The cabinet meetings, usually held on Tuesdays and chaired by Mugabe, may not be held on Tuesday because Mugabe is not yet available after attending the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation summit that ended in Egypt on Monday.

    Tsvangirai said the inclusive government he formed with Mugabe and Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara of the smaller MDC is an important step in efforts to reconstruct the country.

    "What we want to ensure is that this process is not reversed. We don't want the country to slide back to the days of acrimony and we have to clear all the obstacles we faced to make progress," he said.

    Speaking to reporters last Wednesday, Tsvangirai said he and his party would give President Robert Mugabe of the ZANU-PF party a period of one month to fully implement the power-sharing deal signed by the major political parties of Zimbabwe in September 2008.
