NZ to allow Zimbabwe to tour
Wellington: The New Zealand government says it will waive sanctions to allow visas to be issued to the Zimbabwe cricket team which is due to tour next year for the first time in 11 years.
New Zealand will tour Zimbabwe in October -- their first visit there since 2005 -- and a reciprocal tour by Zimbabwe to New Zealand is planned for early 2012.
Foreign minister Murray McCully said o n Sunday that sanctions applied by New Zealand against Zimbabwe, to express opposition to human rights abuses by the regime of Robert Mugabe, would be waived to allow Zimbabwe`s tour to proceed.
McCully said he had informed New Zealand Cricket that exemptions would be made but added the decision was conditional "on the situation in Zimbabwe not deteriorating in a significant way."
