Italy not committed on Gono


0

The Italian government said it supported the Security Council resolution on Zimbabwe which entitled the United Nations to intervene militarily in the southern African country but said it had no comment on central bank governor Gideon Gono at the time.

It was responding to a request from the United States to list Gono on the European Union sanctions list as the US wanted to include him on the proposed UN sanctions list.
