A top European Union (EU) team will travel to Zimbabwe to work on normalising ties, the first such visit since the EU sanctioned Zimbabwe's hard-line leaders in 2002.
Swedish International Development Cooperation Minister, Gunilla Carlsson, and EU Aid Commissioner, Karel de Gucht, will travel there after an EU-South Africa summit.
Carlsson and de Gucht will be meeting President Robert Mugabe, Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, other ministers, officials and representative of NGOs during their visit.
The weekend visit comes three months after the EU and Zimbabwe held their first official talks in seven years, with the EU vowing to fully restore ties once "sticking points" are overcome.
