Addressing a media briefing in Pretoria, South Africa, Ban said: "All
these efforts would be better mobilised, would get stronger and more
support from the international community if we can see the progress in
political and national reconciliation."
The sluggish progress by Mugabe and his ZANU-PF party in adhering to
the agreement – and at times flagrant violation of it – has instilled a
sense of pessimism about whether it will succeed in saving the country
from becoming a failed state.
"The international community, led by the UN, stands ready to provide
the necessary assistance, humanitarian assistance and promotion of
human rights, and all necessary medical and sanitation support to
Zimbabwean people," Ban said.
