DR Congo peace accord is signed

1 post in this topic

Regional African leaders have signed a UN-brokered accord which aims to bring peace to the troubled eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The deal was signed in the presence of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.

He said he hoped it would bring "an era of peace and stability" to the region.

As many as 800,000 people have been displaced since the March 23 rebel group took up arms against the Kinshasa government last May.

"It is only the beginning of a comprehensive approach that will require sustained engagement," Mr Ban said.

Let us hope it truly is a step forward.
