Asked for the Prime Minister’s reaction to Italy’s suggestion to start removing EU Ambassadors from Zimbabwe, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that we had seen the suggestion but that it was not something we were looking into at the moment; it was best to check with the Foreign Office for the official reaction.

The PMS went on to draw the journalists’ attention to the G8 Foreign Ministers statement which had been issued from Japan this morning in relation to the elections taking place today; those views, and the view of the Foreign Secretary on the radio this morning, reflected the Prime Minister’s thinking on this.

Asked if the Prime Minister had had or was planning to have any talks with African leaders, the PMS said that she was not aware of any planned calls, however, the Prime Minister had spoken at Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday about the people he had spoken to. This was something that was being taken forward at the G8 today with Foreign Ministers and we continued to have constant dialogue with our partners in the region.
