The Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the rebel M23 will begin discussions Sunday in Kampala to bring peace to eastern DRC, renewed fighting  in recent months, according to M23 delegation email to Great Lakes Voice

“We’re here (Kampala) and tomorrow (Sunday) we meet with the delegation of the Government of the DRC at 15:00 (24:00 GMT),” said the spokesman, Bertrand Bisimwa was quoted as saying.

No other person, including Uganda government or DRC authorities, has announced the Sunday talks. “Yes, we are going to talk about the agreements we had demanded. we have to make sure peace if found in DRC. we don’t know what’s is in the mind of the government delegation but our stance is clear, no body profits during the war,” the email reads.

The government of Uganda, which is trying to broke the deal between government and M23 rebels in the DRC, announced the opening of these discussions on Friday. This term, however, had been held, the delegation of M23 being arrived by road, Friday night in Kampala.

Since November 20, when M23 rebels captured the strategic town of Goma, the rebel group decided to withdraw on ICGLR deal, raising out the cloud of fears of a new conflict in the country.

The M23 has finally agreed to withdraw from Goma in exchange for negotiations with the government of President Joseph Kabila. The rebels, who left Goma on December 1, want both negotiate their reintegration into the armed forces of DRC and obtain the opening of a national political dialogue in the country
