Burundi : appel à garantir un espace politique et le respect des droits humains

Le vice-Premier ministre et ministre de la Coopération au Développement Alexander De Croo a fait part de son inquiétude après l'annonce de la candidature du président burundais Pierre Nkurunziza à un troisième mandat. Un troisième mandat va à l'encontre des accords d'Arusha qui ont mis fin à la guerre civile au Burundi et posé les jalons de la paix. Il en appelle tous les acteurs burundais à garantir l'espace politique et à respecter les droits de l'homme. La Belgique et la coopération belge développement suivront de près la préparation et le déroulement des élections et ne concluront pas de nouvel accord de coopération tant qu'il n'est pas certain que les règles du jeu démocratique sont respectées.

The European Union shouldn’t be left alone to manage this crisis.The Mediterranean Sea, cradle of our civilization, is becoming a deathbed for thousands of nameless, desperate men, women and children. These people had lives full of pain, despair and hope, which led them to become victims of human trafficking. The voices of mothers who lost their children at sea will haunt our consciences.
