Britain & Australia Call For Arms Embargo Against Zimbabwe

In light of the current political situation in Zimbabwe, Britain is calling for an international arms embargo against the southern African nation. Australia has also added its support for the British initiative. However, African National Congress Chair Jacob Zuma opposed the move after he met with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown stating the situation didn't warrant such action. Although Zimbabwe's African neighbors recently refused to allow a shipment of Chinese arms to Zimbabwe if the embargo doesn't have their support it probably won't do much good.
