PRESS RELEASE
On the Signing in Pretoria of a Burundi Power-Sharing Agreement

On August 6, an agreement was signed in the South African capital Pretoria on power sharing in the posttransitional period in Burundi between the representatives of the various political parties and movements of the country.

Welcoming these arrangements and highly assessing the mediation of the leadership of the Republic of South Africa in reaching them, Moscow regards the signed Agreement as an important step toward restoring peace and security and toward completing the settlement process in Burundi.

Russia as a UN Security Council permanent member will continue active participation in the international efforts, including a UN peacekeeping operation, aimed at stabilizing the situation in that country and in the African Great Lakes region as a whole.
