Harare - Zimbabwe's governing partners are trading accusations the other is undermining their coalition.

Former opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, sworn in as prime minister in February, and longtime President Robert Mugabe met on Monday and into the early hours Tuesday.

Talks are continuing onTuesday in an attempt to resolve their differences.

Edwin Mushoriwa, a spokesperson for Tsvangirai's party, said, "both parties feel that each one of them is failing to honour the terms" of the deal.

Tsvangirai's party accuses Mugabe's Zanu-PF party of stalling on political reforms.

Zanu-PF spokesman Ephraim Masawi said Tsvangirai's party has done too little to fight international travel and other restrictions on top of Zanu-PF leaders.
