RWANDA EXONERATED: UN Refrains From Accusing Rwanda as an External Military Supporter of the M23

The United Nations Security Council (UN) has refrained from citing Rwanda as an external military supporter of the M23 Rebel Group, a terrorist movement that carries out military aggressions against the Congolese army (FARDC) in North Kivu Province.

Despite several accusations by the Congolese government, the UN Security Council members has visibly changed while UN experts mention in their various reports, direct military interventions by the Rwandan army (RDF) on Congolese territory.

After examining and hearing a presentation by the Special Representative of the Secretary General to the DRC and Head of MONUSCO, Bintou Keita, the members of the UN Security Council, in a report published on Friday, limited themselves to condemning “the external military support” provided to the M23 and any other armed group operating in the DRC.

They also demanded that any “external parties” providing such support stop it and immediately withdraw from the country.

“They expressed serious concern about the information communicated by the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo regarding external military support provided to the M23 and direct military interventions on Congolese territory.

They also condemned the support provided, in particular by military forces, to certain armed groups such as the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and demanded that such support be put an end.
