Asked if the Prime Minister would be speaking to anyone today about Zimbabwe, the PMS said that we were in close contact with both leaders in the region and our international partners. As journalists were aware, Lord Malloch-Brown was attending the African Union Summit in an observer capacity, but if there were any further comments from Prime Minister we would update people this afternoon.

Asked what the Prime Minister thought should happen now, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had commented on this in the last few minutes. There was a meeting of the African Union today and we welcomed the recognition of the problem by some African leaders who had been speaking out; we had always made clear that the solutions to Zimbabwe’s problems must be African solutions. We would continue to speak to our international partners to look at how we could intensify the sanctions regime and would continue to bring the maximum pressure to bear on Mr Mugabe and his cabal.
