France / Burundi – Call for political dialogue

By France - Ministry of Foreign Affairs

PARIS, France, June 29, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- France is concerned about the deterioration in the political, security and economic situation in Burundi.

Like the African Union and together with the European Union, it believes that the conditions necessary for the holding of peaceful and credible elections are not currently in place.

We urge all Burundian actors to resume dialogue without delay, as proposed by the African Union, the East African Community, the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region and the United Nations, in order to find a consensual solution to the crisis, while respecting the existing texts and principles.
