Amid rising tensions, UN chief reiterates concerns to Burundian President

New York, Aug 7 (RDI IBNS): United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza to resume the political dialogue that was suspended last month, and reiterated his strong condemnation of the recent killing of General Adolphe Nshimirimana and the attempted assassination of human rights defender Pierre Claver Mbonimpa.

During their phone conversation yesterday, Ban expressed his deep concern over the impact of these events on security in Burundi, UN spokesperson Stphane Dujarric told reporters in New York. The Secretary-General urged the President of Burundi to resume the political dialogue, which has been suspended since July 19th. He encouraged the Burundian authorities to work closely with the Ugandan-led facilitation on behalf of the East African Community. The Secretary-General offered the UNs full support to help find a peaceful solution to the grave problems facing the country, the spokesperson added. Also yesterday, the Burundi Configuration of the UN Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) strongly condemned the assassination of General Nshimirimana, and the attack against Mbonimpa, while voicing concern about the deterioration of the security environment. The PBC Burundi Configuration calls on all Burundians to exercise restraint in order to prevent a further escalation of violence and to establish the necessary conditions for rebuilding trust and fostering national unity, said the statement.
