EU calls for irreversible transition in Zimbabwe

BRUSSELS, Nov 22 (KUNA) -- The EU called for an orderly and irreversible transition on Wednesday towards genuinely democratic elections after the resignation of President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.
"The consolidation of the constitutional order and respect for fundamental rights and freedoms are key" said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini in a statement late Tuesday.
It is important now, she stressed, that "an inclusive dialogue is established that respects the aspirations of the people of Zimbabwe for a more prosperous and democratic future, and which encourages the acceleration of key reforms." The EU stands ready to accompany this process in cooperation with the African Union and to assist the Zimbabwean people with all instruments at its disposal in order to meet that objective, she added.
