The People’s Republic of China through its Foreign Affairs Spokesperson has called for the unconditional removal of sanctions of Zimbabwe.
“We firmly support the call by African leaders for the unconditional lifting of sanctions that have been imposed on Sudan and Zimbabwe. When COVID19 is still spreading across the world, the US and several European countries have turned a deaf ear to the calls by African countries and people and maintained their pressure on Sudan and Zimbabwe through unilateral sanctions,” he said.
“This has caused great sufferings for local people and can hardly find any support. China calls on the relevant countries to heed the calls of the African people, lift illegal sanctions as soon as possible, and make some real contributions to Africa’s efforts to defeat the virus and develop the economy.”
