Zim To Re-Engage With US Despite Sanctions

Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Dr Sibusiso Moyo has reportedly uttered that Zimbabwe will continue to re-engage the United States of America despite the regrettable signing into law of the amended Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Amendment Act (Zidera).

He further stated that the chaos that rocked Harare should not hinder the country’s commitment to re-engage with international communities.

This came to light after the United States President, Donald Trump, slapped the Zimbabwe government with new sanctions.

Speaking to journalists at his Munhumutapa Offices yesterday, Dr Moyo said some of the issues raised in the amended Zidera had already been addressed by Government since the ushering in of the new dispensation in November last year.

“While we regret that Zidera continues to exist in any form, we are determined to continue in the re-engagement with the US administration, as we together seek to restore our bilateral relations to normalcy,” he said.

“Zidera remains a challenge in that it is an extra territorial law, as Zimbabwe is not legally bound by another State’s domestic laws. However, some of the issues it raises, (such as) rule of law and enjoyment of freedoms, have been ushered in by the new dispensation.

““The rule of law, freedom of expression, free and fair elections have already been accomplished in the new dispensation.

“Reforms of political and economic laws are ongoing endeavors in the new dispensation. The unprogressive aspects however of the amended act refer to some issues which are being addressed by the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission.”
