Presidents of Congo and
Rwanda call for peace talks

Hope for dialouge
between rebels and
government renew
The presidents of Congo and
Rwanda on Thursday called for
peace talks to quickly resume
between the Congolese gov-
ernment and a rebel movement
that is widely believed to be
backed by Rwanda.
The summit organized in
Uganda's capital marked a rare
opportunity for Congolese Presi-
dent Joseph Kabilaand Rwandan
President Paul Kagame to hold
face-to-face meetings at a time
when their countries are on edge
over Rwanda's alleged military
involvement in eastern Congo.
The negotiations between
the Congolese government and
the M23 rebels have repeatedly
stalled since late last year.
In a statement issued late
Thursday, the presidents and
other regionalleaders called for
peace talks to resume within
three days' time "and conclude
within a maximum periodof14
days during which maximum
restraint must be exercised on
the ground to allow for talks to

In August, Congolese troops
backed by U.N. forces battled
M23 rebels near the eastern
city of Goma, home to nearly 1
million people along the Rwan-
dan border. Rwanda accused
the Congolese military of firing
missiles across the border and
warned that "this provocation
can no longer be tolerated."
Then the M23 rebels last
week declared a unilateral
cease-fire following a week of
heavy fighting with the Congo-
lese troops, saying they want-
ed to "give peace a chance,"
although Congo's government
said it wants M23 disbanded.
Congo's government now
will be less keen on the talks as
its army and a newly strength-
ened U.N. intervention force
appear to have the upper hand
in the most recent clashes with
the rebels, according to Jason
Stearns, a Congo expert who
runs the Usalama Project, a
think tank that researches
Congo's armed groups.
"The primary drive to get
back to the negotiating table
is coming from Uganda and
Rwanda," he said. "They (Con-
go's government) feel that they
are in a position of strength."

Congo's government would
be interested in talks that can
lead to "the decapitation of
M23," he added.
Thursday's meeting in the
Ugandan capital of Kampala
was called by Ugandan Presi-
dent Yoweri Museveni "to stop
the fighting and get beck on the
negotiating table," according
to James Mugume, the perma-
nent secretary at Uganda's For-
eign Ministry.
The summit in Kampala was
organized under the banner of
a regional bloc called the Inter-
national Conference on the
Great Lakes Region. It also was
attended by United Nations spe-
cial envoy Mary Robinson, who
has urged a political solution to
a crisis that recently threatened
to spill over Congo's borders.
In their statement Thursday,
the presidents said they "strong-
ly condemn" the deaths of civil-
ians on both sides of the border
and also urged M23 to stop its
"M23 should put an end to
all military activities, and stop
war and threats of overthrow-
ing the lawful government
of (Congo)," said the state-
ment signed by the presidents
including Rwanda's Kagame.
