WASHINGTON, April 17 (Xinhua) — The United States has lifted its travel warning for Zimbabwe because of some improvement in basic medical, food and fuel services in the country, State Department deputy spokesman Robert Wood said on Friday.
“The political and economic situation is still unpredictable but we lifted the restrictions because there was a return of basic medical, food and fuel services,” Wood said.
“We’re obviously going to continue to monitor the situation and if we feel we need to provide another travel advisory or warning we will certainly do so,” Wood said.
Relations between the United States and Zimbabwe have soured in recent years, with former U.S. President George W. Bush and his administration accusing Mugabe’s government of rigging parliamentary and presidential elections since 2000.
The United States and some Western nations imposed travel warnings against Zimbabwe as part of sanctions against the southern African country.
