Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Cain Mathema has said world security, Zimbabwe included, is under threat from US dominance.
He said this while officially opening the 32nd Session of the Zimbabwe-Zambia Joint Permanent Commission on Defence and Security in Victoria Falls. Mathema said the sanctions imposed by the US continue to undermine Government’s foreign policy and re-engagement. Said Mathema:
We’re meeting at a time when global security is under threat from dominant tendencies by the United States which is seeking to impose its will on the global order by imposing economic sanctions on other countries.Zimbabwe has been a victim of such sanctions imposed by America under the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act (Zidera) and these sanctions continue to undermine the New Dispensation’s foreign policy thrust of engagement and re-engagement as well as international dialogue
