That is what emerged from the courtesy meeting held on Friday 25th May between the accredited Republic of Burundi Ambassador to Morocco and the Equatoguinean Ambassador. The meeting served as a framework for the Burundi diplomat to pass on a message of appreciation and recognition from his Government for the role played by our country on the UN Security Council.
My Government followed very closely the analysis of the situation in Burundi during the work of Thursday 24th May 2018 in the Security Council, and we appreciate the diplomatic capacities of the Equatorial Guinea representatives. For that reason the Government and the people of Burundi have entrusted me with passing on to the Government of Equatorial Guinea our admiration and recognition for the noble work done in favour of Africa and the sovereignty of States”, indicated the Burundi Ambassador.
In reply, the Accredited Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco, Crisantos Obama Ondo, after hearing with satisfaction the appreciation for the work of Equatorial Guinea on the UN Security Council, told his counterpart that Equatorial Guinea, in its foreign policy designed by the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, aimed for peaceful solutions to conflicts, solidarity, respect for national sovereignty, and a rejection of all types of interference by States in the internal affairs of others.
Obama Ondo told his counterpart that each country had its own socio-political reality, its challenges and its opportunities, and so African countries must continue to guarantee their sovereignty and respect for their political framework within the international community.
Specifically, the Security Council studied the situation in Burundi on 24th May, with the presentation of a report by the General Secretary’s special envoy, M. Michel Kafando, following the referendum held on 17th May 2018.
