Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette is on her way to Burundi from Kosovo, continuing her visits to peacekeeping missions to reinforce Secretary-General Kofi Annan's zero-tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse for United Nations personnel.

As she has in previous stops, Ms. Fréchette will review the status of relevant prevention and enforcement measures in place at the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB).

Ms. Fréchette will be in Burundi from 8 to 10 June.

She has already visited UN peacekeeping missions in West Africa from 28 February to 6 March 2005, including those in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire. She was in Kosovo from 5 to 7 June.
