MDC Statement on Veto of UN Resolution

The Movement for Democratic Change appreciates the focus of the United Nation Security Council on the Zimbabwean crisis.

We acknowledge that the Security Council has recognized the magnitude of the problems facing Zimbabwe and their impact on the southern African region.

The international community has recognised that the violence in Zimbabwe is state-sanctioned. Over a hundred people have been killed, many thousands beaten, tortured and displaced and millions now facing economic hardship and starvation.

The suffering of the Zimbabwean people is worsening every day and a peaceful negotiated transition is urgently required.

In light of this, the MDC calls upon the African Union to work with SADC in establishing the framework in which a negotiated solution can be formulated.

The MDC would like to express its gratitude to countries and organisations that continue to support the Zimbabwean people in their struggle for freedom and stability.
