Zimbabwe must adopt economic, political and social reforms before getting any additional aid from the Netherlands, the Dutch government told Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai during his visit here on Sunday. 

Tsvangirai says he hopes to launch a new round of talks with the European Union at the end of his trip to discuss future aid.

On his first stop Sunday in the Netherlands he met Dutch Development Aid Minister Bert Koenders.

Aides say Tsvangirai next travels to the United States and plans to meet President Barack Obama on Friday.

Koenders says the West still needs to see more progress on reforms targeting human rights, the reining in of security services and the country’s central bank. (AP)
