HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwe's foreign ministry says it summoned the United States ambassador to protest harassment of Zimbabwean leaders at the recent United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The ministry said in a statement the country's foreign minister was denied diplomatic privileges when leaving John F. Kennedy airport after last month's U.N. summit. It said Tuesday he did not receive standard VIP status.
Earlier, the U.S. State Department reminded President Robert Mugabe and his aides they were prohibited from traveling beyond a 25 mile (40 kilometer) radius of the U.N. headquarters under American travel and banking sanctions targeting Zimbabwean leaders accused of human and democratic rights violations.
A U.S. entry visa ban on Mugabe and his entourage is routinely waived for U.N. meetings. U.S. officials in Harare had no immediate comment Tuesday.
