No aid till agreement honoured

JOHANNESBURG - US Ambassador to Harare James McGee has said the new government in Zimbabwe would not receive financial aid until all parties showed they were serious about implementing the spirit of the historic power-sharing agreement.

According to Business Day, McGee said a meeting hosted by the European Union (EU) Ambassador to Harare, Xavier Marchal, had resolved that until the new government showed that it was serious about the deal, the EU would not put a penny into the beleaguered country.

Targeted sanctions would stay in place until things start moving to honour the agreement.

McGee said the international community, however, had decided to move immediately on humanitarian aid to the country, as well as what he called technical assistance to the government.
