UK: STATEMENT FROM PARLIAMENT ON RWANDA'S ROLE IN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO


Source: http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/149

Early day motion 149

RWANDA'S ROLE IN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

That this House is gravely concerned by the UN report that the recent rebellion in the Democratic Republic of Congo is being fuelled by recruits and support from neighbouring Rwanda; recalls that in December 2008 Sweden and the Netherlands revoked aid to Rwanda because of its support to militia gangs killing and raping in Congo; acknowledges that without foreign aid Rwanda cannot continue to finance its deadly but highly profitable wars in Congo; supports Save the Congo's call on the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to unilaterally adopt tough measures against any government, individual or corporation supporting militia gangs in Congo; and urges the Government to fully examine Britain's military and financial support to Rwanda and report to the House on this matter on the earliest possible occasion.
