Australia’s conditions for lifting sanctions on Zimbabwe


0

Australia today said it would gradually lift its travel, financial and military sanctions against Zimbabwe and its government officials in three stages. Foreign Affairs Minister Bob Carr said: “The benchmarks are these: the setting of a date for a constitutional referendum, a peaceful and credible constitutional referendum being held, and third, free and fair elections taking place and a democratically elected government taking office.” “We will in response to these three benchmarks being reached, peel back our sanctions which include travel and financial restrictions against 153 individuals in the regime, in the government and four entities, an arms embargo and prohibition on defence links.”
