President Denis Sassou Nguesso of the Republic of Congo arrived in Kinshasa on Friday to meet with President Joseph kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo over strained relations between the two countries.

A joint statement released after the meeting said that the two leaders discussed “issues of common interest, including security, cooperation and mutual assistance, and the strengthening of long ties” between the two countries.

Great Lakes sources said that the discussion between the two leaders focused on the Kishansa plea to get Gen.Munene back from Brazzaville to serve his life sentence in DRC.

“His Excellency, Joseph Kabila Kabange was convincing Ngueso to accept handing over Gen. Munene to face justice but, seems President Ngueso did not get convinced,” The source in Congolese Foreign affairs Minister office said.

The Democratic Republic of Congo recalled its ambassador to Brazzaville last month over the refusal by the Republic of Congo to extradite Mr. Ondjani Mangbama and General Faustin Munene, two DR Congo citizens being held after fleeing to the Republic of Congo.

Mr. Ondjani led an uprising in Equateur province in 2010. As Gen. Munene’s rebellion was in Bas-Congo province.

General Faustin Munene was sentenced in absentia to life imprisonment for fomenting a rebellion in Bas-Congo province.

The DRC’s government has said that its investigation into an attack on President Kabila’s residence in Kinshasa in February has linked the assailants to General Munene.
