China Welcomes Signing of Arusha Peace AgreementChina welcomes the signing in Tanzania of the Arusha Peace Agreement by the Burundi government and most of the political parties, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhu Bangzao Tuesday.
He noted that the signing of the agreement is an important step in the Burundi peace process.
He expressed the appreciation for the unremitting efforts by the Burundi government and the parties concerned to achieve national reconciliation, and spoke highly of the contribution of Nelson Mandela, former South African president and an international coordinator, and the relevant parties of the international community for their work at pushing forward the peace process.
Zhu said that Chinese government hopes that Burundi's relevant parities will pay much more attention to national peace and stability and the fundamental interest of its people, and in the spirit of national reconciliation, they should completely eradicate the ethnic resentment, resolve the existing differences through talks and consultations, so as to achieve the long-term security of the nation and economic developments.
He also said that the Chinese government hopes that the international community will give more support to the peace process and economic development of Burundi.
