Framework hold hope for peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

25 July 2013

Four months ago, the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the region was signed, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told a meeting of the Security Council on Thursday.

His remarks were made as the Security Council opened debate on the Great Lakes region, that is the countries surrounding Africa’s great lakes – Burundi, Tanzania, the DR Congo, Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya

It was hoped, he said, that the Framework would help bring an end to the large-scale violence that has plagued the region for the past two decades.
