Blinken: US 'concerned' over reports Rwanda backing rebels in DRC

Al Jazeera, 11 Aug 2022
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Rwanda, for the last stop of a tour that included a visit to neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.
Blinken was in Kinshasa on Tuesday, where he said he was concerned about reports that Rwanda has been supporting the M23 rebel group in the DRC.
The resurgence of the M23 group in Congo’s restive east has exacerbated tensions between the neighbours, with Kinshasa accusing Kigali of backing the rebels.
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has led an initiative to disarm the active rebel groups, while Angolan counterpart Joao Lourenco has worked to ease tensions between Kinshasa and Kigali.
