DRC Refuses To Sign Accord With M23 Rebels

The Democratic Republic of Congo’s government said it refuses to sign a peace accord with the M23 rebel group and will only agree to a document that sets out the fighters’ reintegration into society or their prosecution.

A ceremony at Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s residence at Entebbe was abandoned yesterday after the Congolese government delegation refused to enter the room where the peace agreement was to be signed, according to the Ugandan presidency. Uganda mediated talks that began in December to end the conflict between M23 and the army in eastern Congo.
