The US gain reiterated its stance that Zimbabwe’s economic problems are not a result of sanctions but harmful policies. In a statement released on Monday, the US said:
Since 1980 our commitment to the Zimbabwean people is unchanged: Over $3 bn to improve health, food security, economic resilience and democratic governance. Delivery on promised political and economic reforms will allow us to do even more.
Many years of harmful policies, not U.S. sanctions, have led to Zimbabwe’s current economic challenges. We recognize Zimbabwe is making difficult economic decisions with limited resources in order to improve Zimbabwe’s trajectory.
