Congo tops agenda of special UNSC session

US expresses deep concern on reports of resumed external support to rebel group M23, active in the DR Congo.

    Rwanda has been accused of backing M23 rebels in neighbouring the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) once again.

    US Secretary of State John Kerry himself chaired a special session of the UN Security Council (UNSC) to discuss the issue, expressing deep concern on recent reports of resumed external support to M23, a rebel group active in the DRC.

    Although he did not give any names, reports in question by Human Rights Watch and a UN panel of experts point to DRC’s neighbour Rwanda.
