Newscast Media KAMPALAThe Ugandan government through Uganda's Chief of Defense Forces, issued a statement that said the M23 rebels had agreed to withdraw from the Democratic Republic of Congo without pre-conditions.

Newscast Media reported on Monday, how the war in the DRC was escalating.


Accordingly, we have to give credit where credit is due, for all those who negotiated not only a ceasefire, but also a full withdrawal from the region by the rebel invaders.


In a statement published in Uganda's state-owned New Vision paper, the Chief of Defense Forces Aronda Nyakayimira said, "We met last night [Monday] and I communicated to him [the rebel leader] the decision of regional leaders reached on Saturday and he accepted to pull back his forces out of Goma and Sake and also stop any further advances southward.

"He didn't put up any conditions for pulling out because he agreed that all their grievances will be resolved in the ICGLR (Great Lakes) mechanism as stipulated in the declarations of the Saturday summit (in Kampala)," Nyakamira told the New Vision paper. (pop-up)

Hopefully this time the rebels will be as good as their word, since in the past they have broken such agreed-upon conditions, particularly the Lusaka Agreement. The withdrawal should be from the entire DR Congo, not just Goma and the surrounding eastern regions of the country.

Newscast Media will continue to monitor the situation in the Great Lakes region of Africa, and will update our readers should any further developments occur.                                        Add Comments>>
