Head of State receives high-level UN delegation in audience
The Head of State H.E Evariste Ndayishimiye received in audience on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at the Ntare House Palace a UN delegation led by the special envoy of the United Nations Secretary General for the Great Lakes region Mr. HUANG Xia and United Nations Under-Secretary General for Africa Bintu Keita.
After the hearing, Mr. HUANG Xia said that this meeting is part of the multidimensional strategic assessment, at the request of the Secretary General of the United Nations and the Security Council. Also at the request of the Secretary General of the United Nations, the United Nations office for the Great Lakes region is preparing a new regional strategy, he said. He then said that this was an opportunity to do a good job of listening in order to make a good multi-dimensional and regional strategic assessment report.
Mr. HUANG Xia promised that this delegation will use these different strategies to make a good report that will meet the expectations of the Great Lakes countries in order to see how the United Nations can improve their work to better support and accompany the Great Lakes countries.
As for the Spokesman for the Head of State Mr. Jean Claude Karerwa Ndenzako, he announced to the press that the Head of the delegation welcomed the step taken in terms of safeguarding peace, human rights, into account of gender and social affairs. He did not fail to positively appreciate the good cohabitation of Burundians as well as the peace and security that reign throughout the national territory, continued Mr. Jean Claude Karerwa.
The Spokesman for the Head of State also recalled that this hearing took place at the time when the Secretary General of the United Nations H.E Antonio Guteress and the President of Burundi H.E Evariste Ndayishimiye had conducted a conversation by telephone in June 2020. From this conversation, the Head of State explained to the United Nations Secretary General the priority areas to which the partners can lend a hand.
According to the Spokesperson for the Head of State, whether during this conversation or this hearing, the President of the Republic has always called for the withdrawal of Burundi from the agenda of the UN Security Council, because, he said, there is no rag burning to keep Burundi on the agenda of the Security Council.
However, the Head of State H.E Evariste Ndayishimiye thanked this delegation for this visit and in particular, he addressed his thanks to the Secretary General of the United Nations H.E Antonio Guteres who kept his promise by sending this high-level delegation, concluded the Spokesperson of the Head of State Mr. Jean Claude Karerwa Ndenzako.
