Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, was best known for standing up to Robert Mugabe.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said he will not form a coalition with Zimbabwe's opposition party, moments after visiting its leader.
Mr Mnangagwa told reporters he saw "no need" for a deal with Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).
He had been visiting Mr Tsvangirai, who is currently battling cancer, at home in Harare.
But instead of being disheartened by Mr Mnangagwa's words, the opposition were upbeat.
Nelson Chamisa, deputy leader of the MDC, said the visit was a step in the right direction.
He told the state-owned Herald newspaper:
This is the new politics we want to see, the politics of peace, the politics of working together, the politics of feeling for one another. This is the direction and we hope it is the kind of talk that will be walked, and talk that will be sustained."
The newspaper also shared pictures of the two meeting on its Twitter account:
Mr Mnangagwa was made president last year, following the end of Robert Mugabe's 37-year tenure.
Zimbabwe is due to have elections later this year.
