Foreign Minister visits Africa on Goodwill Tour

WWN - Foreign Minister Mike Farr and Special Agent Tracee have embarked on a diplomatic mission to Africa.  The Foreign Minister will be visiting South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia.  He is also making a brief stop in France.  The President acknowledged that West Who has not engaged African nations in the past but hoped that this goodwill visit by the Foreign Minister will set the stage for positive relations in the future.

 

Foreign Minister Farr said he was looking forward to touring these African countries.  He will visit Victoria Falls, national parks, and major cities on his tour.  Farr said, "I am really looking forward to Zambian officials showing me Victoria Falls.  They are the largest waterfalls in Africa."  Over a half million visitors each year visit the waterfalls.  Victoria Falls is not the highest or the widest waterfall in the world, but it is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls.  The Foreign Minister will address government officials upon his return to West Who.
