3 “Rwandan-backed M23 terrorists have occupied and looted the town of Bunagana in Rutshuru territory, North Kivu province, killing young children and forcing hundreds to flee in terror. The security situation in the east of the country continues to deteriorate, mainly because Rwanda intends to occupy our land, rich in gold, coltan and cobalt, for its own exploitation and benefit. This is an economic war for resources battle, waged by Rwandan terrorist gangs.” President Felix Tshisekedi said.

4 President Felix Tshisekedi called on all international leaders to support the Democratic Republic of Congo and pressure Rwandan leader Paul Kagame to end all violence against Congo and withdraw his military troops who invaded eastern Congo and they caused deaths, refugees and war crimes against women in particular.

5 “We have the right to demand that our neighbors respect our territory. The people of the DRC want peace, they seek security in their homeland. Eastern Congolese civilians are innocent under the brutal attack of our neighbor. We call on our international partners, in Africa, the US and especially the UK, to condemn this invasion and put pressure on Rwanda to withdraw its troops from our land. Given the UK’s recent $150 million immigration deal with Rwanda, we hope that Prime Minister Boris Johnson can harness influence from him,” President Felix Tshisekedi said.

6 In his opening address to Congolese political representatives and civil society on June 9, King Philippe of Belgium underlined that “the preservation of the territorial integrity of the Congo is a major concern” shared by Belgium. Alexander De Croo, the Prime Minister of Belgium, also stated during the royal visit that “Every country has the right to defend the integrity of its territory” and that Belgium was ready to play a role in bringing stability and peace to eastern Congo, where Attacks by the Rwandan-backed rebel group M23 have intensified in recent weeks. The United Nations Security Council in May called on foreign armed groups to disarm and return to their own countries. The African Union has called for dialogue.

7 The DRC government said it welcomes the proposal made yesterday by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta to deploy a new regional military force led by the East African Community (EAC) to enforce peace in provinces attacked by the M23 and Rwanda, but insists that it will not accept Rwandan participation in this joint force.

8 The President of the Republic of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, is hosting the upcoming CHOGM 2022, the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which will convene in Kigali, Rwanda, from June 20-26. Due to the pandemic, it has been four years since the last biannual CHOGM was held in London, and more than a decade since a CHOGM meeting was held in Africa.

9 “Next week’s Commonwealth leaders’ meeting in Kigali is an excellent opportunity for Prime Minister Johnson to guide Rwanda down the path of peace and stability between neighbours.” Prime Minister Sama Lukonde Kyenge urged.
