The U.S. Has No Moral Right To Punish Another Nation

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa said Thursday that the U.S. had no right to sanction other nations in the name of promoting democracy after Wednesday’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

After violence erupted in the Capitol building in US amid Trump’s refusal to concede defeat in the US election, Mnangagwa took to Twitter to react

He wrote:

Last year, President Trump extended painful economic sanctions placed on Zimbabwe, citing concerns about Zimbabwe’s democracy.

The U.S. Has No Moral Right To Punish Another Nation

Yesterday’s events showed that the U.S. has no moral right to punish another nation under the guise of upholding democracy. These sanctions must end.

I’d like to again congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his confirmation as the 46th President of the United States.

Zimbabwe is, as it always has been, ready to work together as friends and partners with the U.S for the benefit of both our peoples
