Encouraging internal reforms in Zimbabwe

The Foreign Affairs Council adopted conclusions on 22 February concerning the situation in Zimbabwe and the renewal of the sanctions imposed by the EU owing to the insufficient progress by the country with its internal reforms. These restrictions can only be lifted in response to concrete steps in the implementation of the 2008 power-sharing deal known as the Global Political Agreement (GPA). These sanctions are not aimed at the people of Zimbabwe. In fact, the EU remains the largest provider of assistance to the country, in particular through its support for agriculture and food security, social sectors, education and GPA implementation. In 2009, the Union paid out 274 million euros in Zimbabwe.
