Burundi – Resumption of inter-Burundian dialogue (Dec. 28) [fr]
Excerpts from the daily press briefing by Romain Nadal, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international Development spokesman (Paris, December 29th, 2015)
France welcomes the resumption of the inter-Burundian dialogue on December 28 in Entebbe, under the leadership of President Yoweri Museveni.
Like the African Union, whose work we support, France believes that only this dialogue will lead to a negotiated, consensual solution to the crisis.
We call on the Burundian parties to pursue their talks in a timely fashion under the auspices of Uganda, in order to allow Burundi – within the framework of the Arusha Agreement – to return to its model of coexistence and regain its place in the international community.
