Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda says President Edgar Lungu is looking forward to holding talks with political parties and other stakeholders.
Mr. Chanda says President Lungu is in full support of the talks that are being spearheaded by the Commonwealth.
Mr. Chanda has told Journalists in Lusaka that the Head of state is willing to dialogue on issues affecting the country.
He said those who love the country should join the head of state in fighting divisive vices such as tribalism among others.
Meanwhile an opposition political party has castigated political parties that are questioning the ability of the Zambia Centre for Inter Party Dialogue to facilitate inter party talks.
United Progressive People-UPP- leader Saviour Chishimba says Zambians do not need foreigners to make them sit down and address the challenges facing the country.
Dr. Chishimba says the habit of rushing to foreigners every time there is a problem in the country should come to an end.
He has told Journalists that the opposition should find time to engage government if the country is to move forward.
Meanwhile Mr. Chishimba said there is no need for anyone to shun national events such as the Youth day.
Dr. Chishimba said such days are important as they help the country to reflect on the sacrifice that was made by young people for the country to get its Independence.
