Finally, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the M23 terrorists have consented to abide by the terms of the Luanda agreement that was signed a short while ago. The militants have made it clear that they are ready to uphold all of the terms of the Luanda agreement through their spokesperson, Laurence Kanyuka.
The Luanda Accord demanded that the M23 cease hostilities in Eastern DRC and withdraw their forces from territories they had illegitimately captured. Additionally, they asked to meet with the EACRF, who are serving as the mediators for the Luanda Agreement, and to speak directly with President Tshisekedi's administration.
"M23 asserts that it will adhere to the Luanda Accord on Ceasefire and Withdrawal from the territories it illegitimately holds in Eastern DR-Congo. Aside from meeting with the EACRF and the Mediation Team, the rebel group also desires direct communication with President Tshisekedi's administration in the Democratic Republic of the Congo." The statement was made by M23 in a letter that went viral online.
After refusing to do the same for barely two weeks, the united armed forces were forced to intervene, which led to the M23's statement. The locals are keeping an eye on them to see if they would abuse this opportunity. Get daily news updates by following the page.
