Zim to attend summit despite EU objectcions

HARARE (Reuters) - President Robert Mugabe will attend an EU-Africa summit in Portugal in December despite a boycott threat by Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Zimbabwe's information minister said on Tuesday....

Ndlovu said the Southern African Development Community (SADC) had taken a position to support Mugabe against those seeking his exclusion from the summit.


Both SADC and the AU have warned Lisbon that the summit might not occur again if Mugabe, who is banned from travelling to parts of Western Europe as a result of targeted sanctions, was barred from Portugal.
