Burundi welcomes UN resolution approving police presence
The Burundian government says it welcomes the adoption of United Nation (UN) Security Council Resolution 2279, which calls for the deployment of a UN police contingent to monitor the security situation in Burundi.
The resolution passed on Friday also calls on all parties to reject any kind of violence and public statements inciting hatred. It urges the Burundian government to guarantee fundamental freedoms for all and adhere to the rule of law.
Burundi’s Foreign Minister, Alain Nyamitwe, said President Pierre Nkurunziza’s government has always been open to an international presence in Burundi and would welcome the deployment of a UN police contingent as long as they are not UN troops.
