Statement at the Arusha Peace Talks on Burundi

  • Share

"The successful conclusion of the Arusha Peace Process will mark a historic turning point in Burundi. I should, in this respect, underscore the fact that the success of the Arusha Peace Process will require an immediate end to the current orgy of killings by those in arms in Burundi. For far too long, have innocent people, women and children in Burundi been subjected to the most brutal and macabre spate of mindless killings. I want to say to all Barundis, that no cause, no politics can justify the shedding of so much blood, especially when there are peaceful alternatives for redressing grievances and arriving at a mutually satisfactory settlement." - Dr. Salim, February 21, 2000
