US Senate Sets Steps For Lifting Sanctions On Zimbabwe Govt
The US Senate of Foreign Relations Committee has reportedly approved bi-partisan legislation introduced by U.S. Senators Jeff Flake (R-Ariz) and Chris Coons (D-Del) on setting steps Zimbabwe needs to take to have sanctions lifted.
It is reported that the committee updates the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001 (ZIDERA) and they are ensuring the country’s upcoming elections on July 30 are free, fair, and credible.
Here is what Senator Flake had to say…
The upcoming elections are a once-in-a-generation chance for the people of Zimbabwe to move forward after decades of autocratic rule. The ZDERA Amendment Act reinforces that if the Government of Zimbabwe is serious about bringing change to its people, starting with free and fair elections, it will find a willing partner in the U.S.
This legislation reflects our sincere hope that Zimbabwe makes a transition to a peaceful, democratic, just, and prosperous nation. A free, fair, and credible election is a necessary, but insufficient step to increased levels and areas of cooperation with the United States. Zimbabwe’s leaders must also commit to a peaceful and constitutional transfer of power in order to reflect the will of the Zimbabwean people.
