The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Rwanda, have agreed to demarcate their common land border at the end of a three-day meeting of experts from 4 to 6 August in Goma.

The two parties also decided to put in place a joint technical team to identify the boundary stones starting from stone 6 to stone 22, based on the data from the draft agreement signed on June 25, 1911 between Belgium and Germany, the two colonizing powers of the DRC and Rwanda, respectively.

The joint technical team, whose mission is expected to run from 25 to 30 August, will use a location form, GPS data based on the three-meter WGS 84 reference and pictures of the stone, the source said citing the minutes of the Goma meeting.

The team will also have compasses, GPS navigation receptors, digital cameras, as well as vehicles, the source added.

Another source contacted by APA revealed that only five of the 22 boundary stones have so far been identified.
