UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed grave concern, on Wednesday, over reports that an armed group of former soldiers in the eastern DRC is receiving external support.

The group is known as M23 and is composed of renegade soldiers who mutinied in April from the regular army.

The Secretary-General spoke to President Paul Kagame of Rwanda and President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of the Congo about the deteriorating humanitarian and security situation in the DRC.

 “The Secretary-General expressed grave concern over reports that M23 mutineers fighting government forces in North Kivu are receiving external support and are well-trained, armed and equipped.

Stressing the need to do everything possible to dissuade the M23 from making further advances and to cease fighting immediately, the Secretary-General urged Presidents Kagame and Kabila to pursue dialogue in order to diffuse tensions and bring an end to the crisis.” Martin Nesirky the Secretary-General’s Spokesman said in the statement.
