PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has said that Zambia is championing peace, because the country wants to ensure that atrocities that happened in the world do not repeat themselves.
Mr Lungu said Zambia was a beacon peace and was calling for co-existence among all tribes and races to prevent human atrocities.
He said the killing of six million Jews by the former German Chancelor Adolf Hitler in the 1940s should not be allowed to happen again, while the world was watching.
Mr Lungu said this when he visited the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, Israel yesterday.
The President also laid a wreath on the symbolic graveyard.
Mr Lungu also became the 96th Head of State to plant a tree at the Grave of nations in Jerusalem.
President Lungu said Zambians were humble people who loved peace and coexistence.
Mr Lungu said there was need to take an interest in the development of the Christian faith because Zambia was a Christian Nation.
He said he was, therefore, humbled to visit the Israel Museum to acquaint himself with the development of the bible.
President Lungu also visited the tomb where Jesus Christ was put to rest in Jerusalem.
The President is on a five-day State visit and he would return on Friday. – ZNBC
