His Excellency R.G. Mugabe KCB is saddened by the foreign sanctions and USA interference which has led to the recent events of economic inflation, and has led to the recent launch of the $200,000 note. The Republic of Zimbabwe calls on the MUN to voice its heartfelt opposition to the sanctions and interference which are crippling our nation, and to place their full support behind His Excellency R.G. Mugabe KCB, Honourable J. Msika and Honourable J. T. Mujuru in their valiant efforts to protect the people of Zimbabwe from this menace.

The United States feels that this is a ridiculous attempt to shift blame away from the Mugabe regime. The current economic situation in Zimbabwe is regrettable, but to attempt to blame our nation for this is simply ludicrous.

It is the opinion of the United States that, properly managed, Zimbabwe has quite a bit of economic potential. An abundance of mineral deposits that include coal, platinum and gold should be facilitating economic growth, but government mismanagement has sent a once prosperous economy back to the stone age.

The catalyst for the economic meltdown is the government's land reform program, which has basically destroyed the agricultural sector. Many of Zimbabwe's vital exports have dropped by as much as 75%.

If Zimbabwe wishes to recover, the United States suggests re-examining the government's policies. If Zimbabwe wishes to be rid of foreign sanctions, the United States suggests that the Mugabe regime cease its reign of terror.

France is in support of sanctions, and decries the deteriorating human rights of the Zimbabwean people. However, we do not rule out talking to President Mugabe in Paris as a means to find a solution, provided we can be sure there will be a real chance of success.

I was under the impression Mugabe was banned from entering EU countries and EU delegates from entering in to any diplomatic missions with him?

We can still invite him in with the government's expressed permission, and as we said we'd only do that if we were sure there was a chance of improving the situation.

The economic situation in Zimbabwe is lamentable, but Germany cannot help but express it's concern that the honourable delegate is trying to move the blame onto the wider community than the Mugabe regime.

Liechtenstein agrees with those representatives above: We feel that the current crisis is most likely due to the administration of Mugabe and followers. We do however admit that sanctions have damaged the country, and hope that they will be unnecessary in the future.

Papua New Guniea calls for the immediate lifting of all US sanctions against The Republic of Zimbabwe which are clearly the cause of its worsening economic performance and all that necessarily derives from this - failures in healthcare, education, increased child mortality, malnutition etc. The US sanctions are gravely irresponsible.

The UK points out that Zimbabwe need only hold genuinely free and fair elections to go a long way towards ending sanctions.

We would also call into question whether the Papuan representative has been in touch with his Government recently? We were not aware that the government of Papua New Guinea's stance was significantly different from that of the rest of the international community or, significantly, Australia.

Yeah right, the failing economy couldn't have anything to do with an 80% unemployment rate, could it?:rolleyes:

The United States has enacted sanctions against the Mugabe regime in order to stop Mugabe from using our capitol and our businesses to finance his reign of terror. We have sanctions against 26 farms and businesses, all of which are controlled by high ranking members of the Mugabe regime. We also have personal sanctions against 130 members of the government. We have no trade sanctions or investment sanctions against the nation of Zimbabwe. To blame our nation for the present situation is to completely ignore the factual data.

Egypt is deeply disappointed @ Mr. Mugabe's actions which have worsened the economic crisis and has resulted in mass - exodus of Zimbabweans to South Africa @ the rate of 3000/day. I am also further disappointed @ the fact that Mr. Mugabe has tried to shift the blame onto the US as the reason for his country's problems.

Egypt also agrees with the UK in saying that a free and fair election would be the first step to recovery of the economy.

At the same time, Egypt is also dismayed by the stance of the US on this issue. Egypt suggests that the US could have sat down with Mr. Mugabe and talked over the situation rather than impose all sorts of restrictions on the Zimbabwean economy.

Egypt, therefore, urges the US to at least consider having talks with Mr. Mugabe and try to arrest the declining trend in Zimbabwe.

Ah yes, this must somehow be America's fault right?

Does Egypt honestly think we are alone in our opposition to the Mugabe regime?

Egypt suggests that the US could have sat down with Mr. Mugabe and talked over the situation rather than impose all sorts of restrictions on the Zimbabwean economy.
Have talks? In 2005, our ambassador, Chris Dell said that government corruption was one of the factors in the decline of conditions in Zimbabwe. This is common knowledge. In response, Dell was summoned to a personal meeting with Mugabe, who accused Dell of attempting to incite a revolt, told him to "go to hell" and threatened to expell him from the country. Perhaps if Mugabe starts acknowledging facts and stops acting like a spoiled teenager talks can be considered.

"All sorts of restrictions on the Zimbabwean economy"?! It is quite clear the Egyptian rep has no idea what sanctions are in place. As I said earlier, we have only have sanctions against members of the Mugabe regime and some of their personal businesses. We have NO trade or investment sanctions. If you want to talk about "sanctions all over the economy", I suggest you take a look at the EU's stance.

Egypt, therefore, urges the US to at least consider having talks with Mr. Mugabe and try to arrest the declining trend in Zimbabwe.
We are attempting to arrest the decline of Zimbabwe- in the past 5 years alone we have given over 400 million dollars worth of humanitarian aid to Zimbabwe, and 700,000 tons of food. We cannot, however, change the destructive and dangerous policies of the Mugabe regime.
