Richard Sezibera, Secretary General of the East African Community (EAC) told Xinhua in an interview that the resumption of the talks is a welcome signal to ending the crisis in the country where scores of people continue to die.
"This is a luck for them to sit down around the same table, and discuss the issues for them. There is a lot of hope in this dialogue, both within Burundi and the wider international community," he said.
