Australia yesterday signalled its intentions to lift sanctions against Zimbabwe after PM Morgan Tsvangirai's plea last year for the embargo to be suspended.

Tsvangirai last year met his Australian counterpart Julia Gillard in Canberra where he asked Western countries to reward the inclusive government for the reforms it had instituted since its formation in 2009.

Bob Carr, the Australian Foreign Affairs minister, said his government was planning to lift some of the targeted sanctions in response to Zimbabwe's progress in the constitution-making process.
