France ready to support Zimbabwe’s political transition
Zimbabwe/resignation of President Robert Mugabe – Statement by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Spokesperson
Paris, 21 November 2017
We have just learned of the resignation of Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe, who demonstrated a sense of responsibility by calling for a peaceful, non-violent transfer of power.
We welcome this decision, which must now pave the way for a peaceful political transition, with due regard for the Zimbabwean people’s legitimate aspirations.
We are ready, with our international – especially European and African – partners to back and support this political transition./.
