USA Sends A Message To Rwanda, Tells Them To Do This About The M23

The US has sent a message to the republic of Rwanda telling them what to do with the Congo conflict where the M23 rebels have terrorized the citizens for many years. Rwanda is one of the countries that has been directly affected by the war since most of the rebels are at their border with Congo.

Anthony Blinken, the US Secretary of State has revealed that he had a phone call conversation with Rwanda's president Paul Kagame on Monday to discuss about the peace in Congo. Blinken said that the US wants Rwanda to honor the Luanda agreement which was made sometime back. This includes ending their support for the M23 rebels.

"Had a productive conversation with Rwandan President @PaulKagame to underscore the need for peace and security in eastern DRC. The United States urges Rwanda to honor commitments made in Luanda, including ending Rwanda’s support to M23." US Secretary of State said in a post on twitter.

The Rwandan government has on many occasions been accused of financing the M23 rebels and in return they get the minerals mined in Congo though the Rwandan government has never accepted this.
