Renewed Fighting in Eastern DRC

(1/1)

APO:
WASHINGTON, October 27, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Press Statement

Jen Psaki

Department Spokesperson

Washington, DC

October 26, 2013

We are deeply concerned about reports of increased fighting in North Kivu and call on all parties to refrain from acts of further escalation. We are particularly concerned about reports of cross-border firing. We call on all parties to refer reports of military incidents to the Expanded Joint Verification Mechanism (EJVM) for its immediate investigation, and to cooperate fully and promptly, and grant time for the EJVM to determine the facts of what occurred.

All parties should return to the negotiation table to overcome remaining hurdles to the signing of a final, principled peace agreement, which would establish a permanent ceasefire and hold accountable those who have committed serious crimes.


Shola Sholaz:
All this fighting and killings must just stop once and for all ...all over the world. It's really not worth it
