Belgium government says it will take time for any sanctions against Rwanda, suspected of supporting the Congolese M23 rebels said the Foreign Minister Didier Reynders.

"To this day, I do not want to take a different attitude than respect the proceedings pending before the Security Council," Didier Reynders told Belgian deputies.

Asked about a possible suspension of development aid that Belgium provides in Rwanda, Didier Reynders said that his country would not act out of a joint decision of the European countries without a position of the Security Council of the United Nations.

Head of Belgian diplomacy calls for dialogue between Rwanda and the DRC.

"Only a dialogue between Congolese and Rwandan presidents will solve the crisis," he said.
