Peace commissions to meet next week

Three working commissions of the Burundi peace process are scheduled to meet in Arusha, Tanzania, on 14 December ahead of the fourth round of talks slated for 18 January, the independent Hirondelle news agency said on Friday. Hirondelle quoted an assistant to talks facilitator and former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere as saying the three commissions - on the nature of the conflict, democracy and good governance, and peace and security - will each be composed of 18 members representing the various parties involved in the peace process. The creation and composition of the working commissions were agreed upon during the previous round of negotiations held in October.
