Asked to give a flavour of Mark Malloch-Brown’s briefing to Cabinet on Zimbabwe, the PMS replied that it was a short update noting the very constructive UN Security Council meeting that took place last week where we there was good interventions from the UN Secretary-General and the Head of the African Union. He noted the deteriorating economic situation in particular in Zimbabwe and he emphasised the importance of continuing to stress the need for the election results to be published and for the democratic will of the people of Zimbabwe to be respected.

Put that there had been reports of violent threats against the opposition, and asked if there was nothing more that say South Africa could do, the PMS replied that this was something that we continued to discuss with the South Africans and others. Clearly we would condemn any such action.
