The Chinese Embassy in Burundi has branded a media report claiming it had conducted illegal ivory trade in Africa as "unreal and baseless".
After thorough investigations it has been proved that the case has nothing to do with China or the Chinese Embassy, it said.
At a news conference held jointly by the Chinese ambassador to Burundi, Yu Xuzhong, and representatives of the Burundi government, the ambassador said smugglers transferred a batch of ivory from Bujumbura International Airport in the name of the Chinese Embassy in Burundi in early October.
