SA Urges Lifting Of Zim Sanctions Ahead Of Bi-National Meeting

South Africa’s International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has called on the European Union (EU) to lift sanctions on Zimbabwe’s government.

She said this ahead of South Africa’s bi-national meeting with Zimbabwe in March. After meeting members of the diplomatic corps in Tshwane on Tuesday, Sisulu said sanctions will affect Zimbabwe’s chances at addressing its economic challenges. Said Sisulu:

I thought by now sanctions imposed on the Zimbabwe government and its people would be lifted to enable the country to start afresh after all the challenges they have gone through. We call on the EU, and particularly the United Kingdom, to give the government and the people of Zimbabwe a chance to change their situation by urgently lifting the sanctions. Without lifting the sanctions, the government of Zimbabwe will never be able to address its economic challenges and this is compromising the political gains achieved since the coming in the of the new president,

One Comment on “SA Urges Lifting Of Zim Sanctions Ahead Of Bi-National Meeting

  1. The EU have not imposed ANY sanctions on the Zimbabwean Government OR it’s people. It is a myth. There are INDIVIDUAL sanctions imposed on a few individual named Zimbabweans and one company is blacklisted, Zimbabwe Defence Industries – even some of the individuals, the sanctions are “in suspension” ie not activated. It bores me to constantly hear South Africa moaning about non-existent EU sanctions.
