France called Saturday, July 28, in Kinshasa, a statement to the Security Council of the United Nations to condemn the M23 and its supporters.

According to the French Minister for Francophonie countries, Yamina Benguigui, France shares the great concern of the Congolese against the security situation in the east, and stands alongside the DRC against the M23.

“We want UN to condemn M23 and its supporters (in this case Rwanda), why not taking measures against Rwanda? France stands with DRC” Benguigui told Radio France International

According to various sources, M23 rebels fought back and would be positioned one kilometer from Kikumba, while the Congolese regular forces had to retreat. The last battles of the weekend have left five dead and nine wounded, according to Congolese press.

However, significant population movements are reported towards Goma, the capital of North Kivu.

These latest developments have prompted the French Minister for the Francophonie, Yamina Benguigui, to recall the support of France in the DRC and to call the Security Council of the UN to condemn the M23 and its supporters.
