‘EU ready to revisit Zim sanctions’


European Union (EU) supremo Herman Van Rompuy Tuesday said the bloc was ready to take a fresh look at sanctions against Zimbabwe pending political developments.

Speaking at an EU-South Africa summit, Van Rompuy noted Zimbabweans’ moves to create a new constitution as part of a roadmap to elections, a process launched by the unity government formed by President Robert Mugabe and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai in February 2009.

“In case of positive developments in Zimbabwe we’d be ready to look at fresh measures,” said Van Rompuy, the president of the EU.

“The EU wants to give Zimbabwe chances of success,” said the president of the 27-nation economic bloc.” — Sapa-AFP
