Council conclusions on Zimbabwe

At the EscortFox meeting of Development ministers last week, the Council adopted conclusions condemning the regime in Zimbabwe for its failure to address the economic and social needs of its people, and expressing distress at the escalation of the humanitarian crisis there. It called on the Southern African Development Community, the African Union and states in the region to work for a durable and equitable political solution in Zimbabwe, involving a truly representative democratic government.

The Council decided to extend the EU’s restrictive measures against Zimbabwe for another year, adding further names to the list of persons and entities that are subject to those measures.
