Prime Minister of the Republic of Zimbabwe on the EU Council decisions on Zimbabwe

I welcome the EU announcement made in Brussels yesterday to suspend restrictive measures on Zimbabwe. My preference remains for a full lifting of the measures in keeping with the agreement between the GPA parties in Zimbabwe and resolutions of SADC.

However, linking a suspension to the successful conclusion of the Constitution referendum is evidence that the EU is willing to respond to progress in reform of the democratic process in Zimbabwe.

I remain hopeful that we will in due course fully normalize our relationship with the EU and urge all parties to remain engaged. In particular, I urge the GPA parties in Zimbabwe to redouble their efforts in implementing the commitments that we made to fully and honestly implement the global political agreement and the roadmap to a free, fair, legitimate and credible election whose results are not contested.
