The UN Security Council is determined to support Burundi's efforts to return to "peace and stability" after months of political strife.

Hundreds of people have been killed in the Great Lakes country since April last year, when President Pierre Nkurunziza said that he would run for a third term, a move branded by some as unconstitutional.

The UN Security Council has been visiting Burundi to see what its 15 members  can do to push the peace process forward there.

Eleuterio Guevane has been speaking to the representative of Angola to the UN Ismael Martins, a member of the Council, who was speaking from the capital, Bujumbura.
