PEACE PROCESS UNDERWAY: DR Congo Reiterate Commitment to Proposed AU-Proposed Process for Dialogue with Rwanda

Foreign Affairs Minister Thérèse Kayikwamba has reiterated the Democratic Republic of Congo’s commitment to proposed Luanda process for dialogue with Rwanda to end the ongoing tensions between the two countries.

Kayikwamba recently held a meeting with her Rwandan counterpart, Olivier Ndunhugirehe, in Zanzibar where they discussed matters relating to the upcoming meeting between Presidents Félix Tshisekedi and Paul Kagame.

Speaking after the meeting, Kayikwamba said the DR Congo’s decision to withdraw its membership from the East African Community (EAC) will not change Kinshasa’s position to negotiate for peace in the Luanda process.

“1. The DRC reiterates the primacy of the Luanda process to address tensions with Rwanda

2. The serious human suffering and displacement are due to the violent actions of the RDF and M-23, not local armed groups
3. The EAC retreat forum is not a substitute for the African Union, which mandated the Luanda process,” Kayikwamba wrote on her official X account on Sunday.

Kayikwamba added that the DR Congo will continue planning for the upcoming peace negotiation activities in Luanda to continue with a view to putting to an end to the atrocities suffered by the populations in the east of the country.
