The European Parliament,

- having regard to previous resolutions on Burundi

- having regard to the Declaration by the Presidency of the EU of 23 April 2008

- having regard to rule 115 of its Rules of Procedure

   A.whereas after 14 years of civil war Burundi has yet to establish lasting peace and is currently facing a critical humanitarian and socio-economic situation;
   B.whereas over the past two years international efforts - including the regional peace initiative on peace in Burundi - to establish a peace agreement between the government and the Forces of National Liberation (FNL), have been unsuccessful;
   C.whereas negotiations between the government and the FNL broke down in July 2007 when the FNL walked out of the Joint Verification and Monitoring Mechanism (JVMM), which was created to oversee a ceasefire accord signed in September 2006;
   D.whereas since 17 April fighting has erupted again between the government troops and rebel FNL in Burundi, making thousands of civilians flee their homes and resulting in the deaths of 50 rebel fighters;
   E.whereas in early May, the foreign ministers of Tanzania and Uganda, meeting under the auspices of the Regional Initiative on Peace in Burundi, urged the FNL and other senior rebel leaders to leave Tanzania where they are based and travel to Burundi to engage in the peace negotiations;
   F.whereas the climate of impunity in Burundi has created a situation where torture and illegal detention is rife and involved the Burundi police force;
   G.whereas UNICEF assisted in the demobilisation of over 3000 child soldiers between 2004 and 2006; whereas children at a demobilisation centre recently escaped and went on a rampage;

1.  Calls on all parties to resume negotiations and dialogue and move swiftly to implement the ceasefire and JVMM;

2.  Supports the South African facilitation and regional negotiation efforts and also UN-led mediation efforts by the UN Commission for the Consolidation of peace;

3.  Preoccupied about the critical humanitarian situation, that is compounded by years of restricted access to healthcare, and calls on the government to ensure the rapid distribution of emergency food aid;

4.  Calls on the government of Burundi to take immediate action to end the climate of impunity, ensure that perpetrators of abuses are brought to justice and improve the training of police forces;

5.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council the Commission, the African Union and the governments of Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa.
