Zimbabwe: United Nations

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what the Government's policy is on future action on Zimbabwe by the UN Security Council; what steps are next envisaged; and if he will make a statement. (243157)

We are pursuing all available options to encourage a resolution of the crisis in Zimbabwe, including further UN Security Council discussions. We will continue to ensure that Zimbabwe remains on the Council's agenda, and that it continues to press for an urgent end to the crisis. The Security Council discussed Zimbabwe on 15 December and we will press for further discussion in the coming months. Pressure from African leaders will also help to secure a change for Zimbabwe.
