To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the prospects for an all-inclusive ceasefire in Burundi. [124005]

Mr. Mullin

We are working closely with the Government of Burundi, countries in the region and international partners to help Burundi complete peacefully the period of transition laid down in the 2000 Arusha Accord.

The UK is supporting efforts by the regional initiative on Burundi and the African Mission to ensure effective implementation of an all-inclusive ceasefire. Two of the four rebel factions not included in the Arusha Accord have signed and are implementing ceasefire agreements. We continue to call on the FDD (Nkurunziza) to implement the 2 December ceasefire and the FNL (Rwasa) to enter the peace process without delay.
