MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry is concerned over escalation of tension in western regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DROC).
The Ministry announced: “According to available information, military action between governmental forces and the United Democratic Forces/ Uganda National Liberation Front in North Kivu province. Armed stand-off exacerbates the already poor humanitarian situation in the African nation.”
Moscow believes that regulation of the situation in east DROC and Great Lakes region “will be generally followed according to The Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Region, signed February 24, 2013 in Addis Ababa, as well as the UNSC resolution 2098,” the foreign agency noted.
As a UNSC member and part of the Great Lakes Friendship, Russia intends to actively participate in efforts to reconcile African nations and bring long-term stabilization in the area.
