BUJUMBURA, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Burundi will request an extraordinary summit on the relations with neighboring country Rwanda during the upcoming 20th East African Community heads of state summit in Tanzania, a Burundian president spokesman said Thursday.

The purpose of the extraordinary summit is to discuss "the aggression of Rwanda against Burundi in violation of international laws," Jean Claude Karerwa told Xinhua.
