UNITED States of America (USA) Ambassador to Zambia Daniel Foote says the relationship between Zambia and the United States is strained due to lack of mutual respect by the Zambian government.
And the us envoy says if Zambia does not rethink on building the decaying relationship, the American government will be left with no option but to review the aid levels to the country.
Addressing the media at the US Embassy in Lusaka today,
Amb. Foote who has come under fire for his homosexual comments, has disclosed that he will not attend World AIDS Day commemorations tomorrow due to the threats on his life.
And Mr Foote has also accused the Zambian government of wanting to silence diplomats with divergent views on different issues.
He says for the past two years he has been in Zambia, he has not been granted adequate audience with both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and State House.
