DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION: Blinken Wants End To DRC-Rwanda War

United States Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken has made contact with Rwanda President Paul Kagame in a bid to find a lasting solution to the crisis in eastern Congo.

Blinken says he had a productive call today with Kagame who is blamed for sponsoring M23 rebels who have wrecked havoc in eastern Congo.

Blinken says he discussed with Kagame the volatile situation along the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

During the telephone exchanges Blinken also updated President Kagame on the recent visit of Acting Deputy Secretary Victoria Nuland to Kinshasa to meet with President Felix Tshisekedi.

The Secretary relayed U.S. advocacy for a diplomatic solution to the tensions between the two countries and request for each side to take measures to de-escalate the situation.

“I spoke with Rwandan President Kagame today to discuss the volatile situation along the border between Rwanda and the DRC.

“I shared my hope for a diplomatic solution to the tensions and for each side to take measures to de-escalate the situation,” said Secretary Blinken.
