Democratic Republic of Congo – Fighting in the eastern part of the country (June 12, 2014)
France is concerned about the deteriorating security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the wake of the fighting that has been taking place since June 11 in North Kivu.
We call for the immediate cessation of hostilities.
The joint border verification mechanism supported by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been asked to identify the causes of the clashes.
The parties must do everything possible to reduce tensions in order to find a lasting solution to the crisis. France reaffirms its attachment to the full implementation in good faith of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Great Lakes Region, signed in Addis Ababa on February 24, 2013.
