||<p>I attended the EU-AU Ministerial meeting in Brussels on January 21 where I discussed
a range of issues, including Zimbabwe, with counterparts. I will continue to raise
the political and security situation in Zimbabwe with key interlocutors, including
those from Commonwealth states.</p><p>I have not had any recent discussions with the
Commonwealth Secretariat but officials from the FCO and DFID remain in regular contact.
The UK would not support Zimbabwe's membership of the Commonwealth at this time because
of credible reports of human rights violations by the security forces.</p>
