Sanctions on Zimbabwe: despite rumours, decisions yet to be made

Following rumours published in a British newspaper, which suggested that the EU may be about to lift the sanctions imposed in 2002, when vocal criticism was seen regarding the bad governance of Mr. Mugabe and his lieutenants, the EU Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr. Dell'Ariccia, underlined that decisions have yet to be taken.
According to a recent declaration by H.E. Mr. Dell'Ariccia to VOA news: “Discussions are ongoing, so we don’t know what is the origin of this news, but I can tell you that it is not the case […]"It’s not what is written in a British newspaper that should be taken into consideration for that.”
Sanctions, including an arms embargo, are only due for review next February, unless the Harare situation improves, which may trigger an earlier consideration.
