DR Congo president rejects M23 discussions.


The president of the Democratic Republic of the Congo has ruled out negotiations with the M23 rebel group.

The organization is withdrawing from territory it had acquired in accordance with an international peace agreement.

According to President Félix Tshisekedi, the agreement requires the M23 militants to disarm before returning to civilian life.

Previously, the organization, which is widely believed to have Rwandan backing, had anticipated dialogue with the Kinshasa government.

Since the president has rejected the proposal, correspondents are concerned that it could disrupt peace negotiations.

In the past 18 months, nearly three-quarters of a million people have been compelled to abandon their residences due to the violence.
