TOPAFRICANEWS has learnt that the four regional Head of States who met in Angola on Friday, July 12, 2019 have decided to scale up the cooperation to Uganda to strengthen the joint effort whose objective is to eradicate insecurity in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
In June, Angola and Rwanda decided to join the Democratic Republic of Congo in efforts to eradicate Congolese and foreign armed groups operating in that neighboring country.
The decision was announced in N’sele, east of the Congolese capital, at the end of a mini-summit that brought together the heads of state and Government of the three neighboring countries of Africa’s central sub-region, namely João Lourenço of Angola, Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame and Félix Tshisekedi of the DRC.
During the decision Uganda was not included in the joint work.
However TOPAFRICANEWS learnt on Friday that Angola’s President has requested other Head of States to admit Uganda in the joint work to see this region in a peaceful Environment.
Speaking at the opening of the quadripartite summit (Angola, DRC, Rwanda and Uganda), which Luanda hosts on Friday, João Lourenço stressed that the meeting aims to outline steps to solve the problems that this sub-region of Africa faces.
“I do not say an immediate solution, but at least in the certainty that many of the problems that this sub-region can be addressed and know better days,” said the Angolan Head of State at the meeting, which ends today.
The Luanda summit is being held at the invitation of the Head of State João Lourenço to his counterparts Felix Tshisekedi, Paul Kagame and Yoweri Museveni.
