Zimbabwe says talking to U.S, EU on sanctions

HARARE (Reuters) – Zimbabwe is talking to the United States and European Union over the repeal of sanctions against the country, according to an economic policy document released on Thursday by the new power-sharing government.

The document, called the Short-term Emergency Recovery Progamme, forecast that inflation will reach 10 percent by the end of 2009 due to the use of multiple foreign currencies in the country.

The document also warned against continued invasions and takeovers of mainly white-owned farms, saying offenders could be arrested.
