As he delivered a speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Tshisekedi emphasized the need for his country to regain control over its stability.
The mission, consisting of 15,000 peacekeepers, has struggled to address rebellions and protect civilians.
Originally scheduled for withdrawal in December 2024, DR Congo now seeks an earlier departure, starting this year.

However, its effectiveness has been questioned by many in the DRC.
