The notions of decoupling zeros of positive discrete-time linear systems are introduced. The relationships between the decoupling zeros of standard and positive discrete-time linear systems are analyzed. It is shown that: 1) if the positive system has decoupling zeros then the corresponding standard system has also decoupling zeros, 2) the positive system may not have decoupling zeros when the corresponding standard system has decoupling zeros, 3) the positive and standard systems have the same decoupling zeros if the rank of reachability (observability) matrix is equal to the number of linearly independent monomial columns (rows) and some additional assumptions are satisfied.
