Posted: Saturday, March 17, 2007

HARARE, March 16 (Bernama) -- Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe on Thursday hit out at Europe for continuing to meddle in the politics of the country, saying government does not accept the West's criticism of its reaction to the spate of violence being unleashed by opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) supporters.

Speaking to reporters just before meeting his Tanzanian counterpart, Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, at State House to discuss various issues, including the volatile political situation prevailing in the country, the President accused the West of practicing double standards when dealing with political issues in Zimbabwe.

"Here groups of people were let out of the way to effect a campaign of violence and there was no criticism at all. None of these Missions have said a word in regard to that campaign and now when they criticise the government that is trying to prevent violence and punish the perpetrators of that violence, then we take the position that they can go hang," Zimbabwe's New Ziana news agency quoted Mugabe as saying, in reference to unconditional statements of support to the MDC by a number of western governments, including those of Britain, America and New Zealand.

Mugabe said his government does not brook any foreign interference in the politics of the country.
