Amb. Daair made the disclosure during a press conference held on Wednesday 14th December 2022.
He said that the fighting causing humanitarian suffering has to stop through Luanda and Nairobi process.
“All sides need to implement what has been agreed in places like Luanda and Nairobi. First, the fighting has to stop, all armed groups need to stop fighting and respect the ceasefire. That also includes the FARDC forces. There should not be support to illegal armed groups, and there should be withdraw as has been agreed and the M23 has publicly announced that they will ceasefire and withdraw. These things need to be implemented,” he said.
Amb. Daair has however highlighted that no side seems to be respecting the implementation.
“We are not yet seeing the implementation and we are clear that it needs to happen. We are also clear that there needs more action from the Government of DRC to tackle hate speech in the region, which is now very concerning to many communities there. It also has to tackle any collaboration between its forces and armed groups such as the FDLR,” he noted.
“But there will really not be a military solution to this. A strong opinion is that it needs to be a political process both between countries of the region but importantly between the government of Kinshasa and various rebel groups that exist on its territory,” added Amb. Daair.
Rwanda has been accusing DRC of working with FDLR. The collaboration was also confirmed by the armed group’s combatants captured during a fighting with M23 recently.
