DEFENCE Minister Geoffrey Mwamba has assured that there will be maximum security in Livingstone during the August 2013 United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) General Assembly.
Mr Mwamba said Zambia was a peace haven on the African continent and hence maximum security would be guaranteed during the General Assembly.
He said the defence and security wings would ensure that all delegates were safeguarded during their stay in Livingstone.
The minister was speaking in Livingstone on Wednesday when a team of Cabinet ministers met various stakeholders in the tourist capital.
"The security of UNWTO delegates is paramount to us and I wish to assure the country and world that there will be peace during the UNWTO conference," he said.
Speaking at the same function, Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu said the Government had received a number of complaints from tourism operators over visa fees and he would soon issue a policy statement over the matter.
Mr Lungu said his ministry would deal with issues of immigration and security at border posts to facilitate easier entrance to the country during the UNWTO General Assembly.
On suggestions from Livingstone stakeholders that the Government should introduce sign languages at the border posts, Mr Lungu said the matter would be examined later.
