Rwanda, DR Congo Presidents Hold Talks Over Rising Conflicts (News Central TV)

In the midst of cross-border conflicts, Rwandan President Paul Kagame spoke by phone with his Democratic Republic of Congo counterpart, Félix Tshisekedi, and African Union Chairman Macky Sall.

The Kinshasa government accuses Rwanda of backing M23 rebels in renewed fighting in eastern DR Congo, which Kigali’s government denies.

As the Congolese army battles the rebels in North Kivu province, thousands of people have fled their homes.

“I thank Presidents Felix Tshisekedi and Paul Kagame for our telephone talks yesterday and today [Monday] in the quest for a peaceful solution to the dispute between the DR Congo and Rwanda,” Sall, who is also the Senegalese president, said on Twitter.

He urged Angolan President Joo Lourenço to keep mediating the issue through the regional International Conference on the Great Lakes Region.

Sall had previously expressed “grave concern” about the two countries’ rising conflicts. He called for dialogue to resolve the conflict.

Last week, the Democratic Republic of the Congo suspended flights to Rwanda and summoned Kigali’s ambassador.
