BUJUMBURA, July 13 (Xinhua) -- China has pledged to construct an international conference center for Burundi in the compound of the state-run Radio Télévision Nationale du Burundi, RTNB.

Speaking on Tuesday after touring different departments of the state-run media, Chinese Ambassador to Burundi Yu Xuzhong told reporters that the complex will also be equipped with translation tools.

"We are going to talk to the management of the China CCTVF state-run radio and television and advocate twinship relations between CCTVF and RTNB," Yu said.

RTNB Managing Director Chanel Nsabimbona thanked China for its support to the state-run media.

He said the Chinese ambassador also pledged to replace the main relay transmitter installed at Manga hill, which is often out of order, to ensure Burundians can follow programmes of RTNB more smoothly.

China has provided support for Burundi in many sectors including education and infrastructure construction.
