WAR IN THE EAST: The UN Believe Nairobi & Luanda Diplomatic Processes Have the Potential to Silence the Guns

The United Nations (UN) believe that the initiatives of dialogue chaired by the East Africa Community (EAC) and Angola could lead to seize fire in the ongoing war between the Congolese army and the M23 rebels allegedly supported by the Rwandan army in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Speaking on Tuesday in Geneva, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk says that regional peace processes should in particular guarantee the victims’ right to justice and reparation.

“The Nairobi and Luanda processes have the potential to silence the guns, ensure better protection of civilians and ensure sustainable development. It is crucial that both processes are anchored in human rights, in order to combat impunity and guarantee victims’ rights to truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-repetition” Türk declared.

Meanwhile, Türk also insists that the current deployment of bilateral and regional military forces to enforce peace is carried out in strict compliance with international human rights standards and to humanitarian law.
