The United States welcomes President Nkurunziza’s recent announcement that he does not intend to seek a fourth term, reaffirming the promise he made to the Burundian people in 2015.

His decision to step down of his own accord would be a strong step forward for Burundian democracy and would set a positive example for other leaders in the region.

We call on the government of Burundi to take transparent steps to improve governance, respect for human rights, civic space, and media freedom. These measures are essential for free, fair, and open political competition ahead of the elections in 2020.

The United States reiterates our continued commitment to our partnership with Burundi and its people in support of sustainable peace and development.
