The M23 terrorists in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have finally agreed to uphold the terms of the Luanda agreement which was signed a few months ago. The militants through their spokesperson Laurence Kanyuka stated that they are prepared to carry out all of the terms of the Luanda agreement.
The Luanda agreement required the M23 to stop fighting in Eastern DRC and withdraw their forces from areas they had illegally occupied. They also requested a meeting with the Luanda agreement's mediators, EACRF and direct consultation with President Tshisekedi's government.
"M23 declares that it will follow the Luanda Accord on Ceasefire and Withdrawal from areas it illegally occupies in Eastern DR-Congo. The rebel militia also wants to meet with the EACRF, the Mediation Team and have direct talks with the DRC government led by President Tshisekedi." M23 stated in a letter that was widely circulated on the internet.
The M23's announcement comes just two weeks after they refused to do the same forcing the combined armed forces to step in. The residents are waiting to see if they will abuse this time. Follow the page for daily news updates.
