President Kagame and Macron discuss bilateral cooperation, regional matters including DRC crisis #rwanda #RwOT


The Office of the President, Village Urugwiro, stated that both leaders revisited the bilateral relations between their countries, discussed the results of their existing cooperation, and explored ways to further enhance this partnership.

The heads of both state also delved into the problems in the East African region, including those in Eastern Congo where government forces, supporting countries, and armed groups calling themselves 'Wazalendo' have been fighting with the M23 group.

President Kagame and his counterpart reaffirmed that the path of political dialogue is the only solution that can end the longstanding security issues and conflicts in Eastern Congo.

Currently, there are two main dialogue initiatives aimed at resolving the situation in Eastern Congo, including the Luanda and Nairobi process, both aimed at helping Congo find internal solutions to its security problems.

These discussions have been significantly hindered by the Congo government, which often downplays the grievances of the Kinyarwanda-speaking population, particularly the persecuted Tutsis.

Congo has often stated that it will not negotiate with M23, leading the group to intensify its combat and take over many areas in North Kivu.
