Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Paris, May 14, 2015

The French President is very closely following current events in Burundi. He calls on all the forces involved to renounce all violence and take the necessary steps for the election process to be resumed as swiftly as possible, with due regard for the constitution and the Arusha Agreement.

The French President points out that he called, in his speech in Dakar on 29 November 2014, for constitutions to be respected and elections to be held under indisputably transparent conditions./.
