The British Ambassador to Zimbabwe has reportedly said Britain is ready to work with Zimbabwe the state media reports.

Mrs Robinson said this after paying a courtesy call to Speaker Of The Parliament Advocate Jacob Mudenda.

The Herald quoted the British envoy:

The Honourable Speaker and I had a good discussion this morning and the first thing we discussed was the continuation of trade between the UK and Zimbabwe.

We have excellent trade relationships at the moment over US$400 million of trade in goods from Zimbabwe go to the UK and just recently I was in the Eastern Highlands looking at one of the tea estates of which 95 percent of that tea goes to London and we were talking about ratifying our agreement to continue that trade so that the UK and Zimbabwe can continue the same level of trade after the UK has left the European Union so I was assured by the Speaker that that process is underway

The Britons have been reportedly looking the Zimbabwe way especially after Brexit is finalised. However other reports say Britain is preparing sanctions for Zimbabwe after Brexit.
