Mbeki says end of Zim crisis is in sight

From BusinessDay (Joburg)

PRESIDENT Thabo Mbeki has expressed confidence that a resolution to the Zimbabwe crisis will come to light within the next few days, says visiting Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern....

Ahern said the president had given him a detailed account on the progress of the talks between Zimbabwe's government and factions of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

"The president explained to us that he is within days ... of the final aspects of this. He is, I think, obviously working extremely hard on it, and is hopeful. He gave me what he believes are the sticking points, and his determination to try to work those through," said Ahern, whose two-day working visit to SA ended yesterday.
