Robert Mugabe and Opposition Leader Morgan Tsvangirai Sign Agreement To Power Share!
"Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai have agreed to hold talks within two weeks to try to resolve the country's political crisis.
The two signed an agreement in Harare Monday afternoon to begin formal talks aimed at hammering out a power-sharing deal months after March's disputed presidential election and the widely discredited runoff vote last month.
Mugabe said the talks will "chart a new way" for Zimbabwe but urged negotiators to act without influence from Europe or the United States.
Movement for Democratic Change leader Tsvangirai said he will be "putting the interests of Zimbabwe at the forefront."
The agreement, which marked the first face-to-face meeting between the two in a decade, was signed in the presence of mediator South African President Thabo Mbeki"
