THE BLAME GAME CONTINUES: Tshisekedi Blames International Community For Crisis in Eastern DRC

Democratic Republic of Congo President Fèlix Tshisekedi has accused the international community of playing a part in the ongoing insecurities in the eastern part of the country.

Tensions continue to rise in the eastern part of the DRC where rebels have seized a number of territories with the Congolese army (FARDC) grappling to contain the M23 fighters whom the Congo claim are backed by Rwanda.

In an interview with French newspaper Le Monde, Tshisekedi said he was disappointment what he described as insufficient action by international community to resolve the crisis.

According to him, the international community have played a part in the ongoing crisis by been complicit to Rwanda’s behavior and failure to serve sanctions against this country.

“I just remembered that Rwanda was not solely responsible for the misfortunes of the Congo [the international community too]” he pointed out.

Tshisekedi also complained that despite the provocations and alleged bad intentions of Rwandan President Paul Kagame, he had opted for a diplomatic route in the hope of reaching a peaceful resolution.

However, he warned that if this path did not bring concrete results, the DRC would be ready to respond to provocations with the means at its disposal.

“This is the last chance route, beyond which we will respond to skirmishes, because we have the means,” warned Félix Tshisekedi.
