Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Sibusiso Moyo has said that relations between Zimbabwe and the United States are going to better despite the passing of sanctions through the Zidera Amendment Act. Moyo described the Zidera Amendment as an improvement from the previous state. Said Moyo after being sworn in,
From what it was originally, (the amended Zidera Act) is a very improved status. It is like moving from minus 15 degrees to zero, it’s progress. We believe that this has been an improvement even on the part of the Americans, especially from the efforts of Senators Coons and Flake. They observed our elections and said this was the best election they had seen (contrasted against Zimbabwe’s previous polls). Although we still argue, we do not deserve any form of restriction. It is important to note that there has been progress…All we want is to ensure that we are friendly to all countries.
