DRC – Action by MONUSCO (UN Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo) (December 12, 2013)
France reaffirms its support for MONUSCO in its efforts to help the Congolese armed forces combat the armed group belonging to the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda.
MONUSCO operates in the eastern part of the DRC in accordance with the mandate set out in UNSCR 2098. Its operations contribute effectively to restoring the authority of the Congolese state throughout the territory and to protecting the civilian populations, who have suffered abuse for far too long. They also help to ensure progress toward peace, in accordance with the Addis Ababa Agreement.
We again commend the resolute commitment of Mr. Martin Kobler, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC, to implementing, in an impartial manner, MONUSCO’s mandate.
