1. Zimbabwe - Resignation of President Robert Mugabe - Statement by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Spokesperson (Paris - November 21, 2017)
We have just learned of the resignation of Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe, who demonstrated a sense of responsibility by calling for a peaceful, non-violent transfer of power.
We welcome this decision, which must now pave the way for a peaceful political transition, with due regard for the Zimbabwean people’s legitimate aspirations.
We are ready, with our international - especially European and African - partners to back and support this political transition.
