  • “While Rwanda sees military action as the only viable option, Tanzania says such action would not be justified until the DRC identifies the insurgents, disarms them and calls in the UNHCR to repatriate them to Rwanda in line with an accord reached in the Unites States last September.

  • Under pressure to act on the Rwandan rebels, President Joseph Kabila announced last week that government forces will force the Rwandan rebels out of their positions.”
