It has been two months since the city of Bunagana and some other localities in the territory of Rutshuru (North Kivu) are occupied by the M23 fighters. The military solution tramples and the diplomatic option does not advance. This situation poisoned relations between Kinshasa and Kigali. Paul Kagame is accused of supporting this movement. A roadmap supposed to lead to de-escalation was signed in early July by the Congolese and Rwandan authorities in Luanda, Angola, but it has still not allowed a cease-fire on the ground.

With our correspondent in Kinshasa, Patient Ligodi

it has been sixty days since the city of Bunagana is administered by the M23 . All exit points are meticulously controlled. In addition, the Directory of the M23 gives no indication of its desire to leave Bunagana. He claims to have stopped fire and says he is still waiting for the government to open a dialogue before considering anything.

The M23 also says that it has no plan to move forward and occupy other cities and localities in the region. However, about ten days ago, of the fighting was reported by the Congolese army and the UN sources around the Rumangabo military camp.

For its part, the government is not ready for a dialogue with the M23, which it considers a terrorist group. He still supports, based on the recent report of United Nations experts, which the M23 only resists because it receives a support from Kigali.

Thus, the Congolese authorities are waiting for the UN Security Council to put pressure on Paul Kagame , the Rwandan President, especially having regard to the few results collected by regional organizations in the talks under the aegis Kenya and Angola.
