Presidents of Angola and Burundi spoke on the phone about ceasefire in DRC

The President of the Republic and his Burundi counterpart spoke this Tuesday by telephone about the Luanda Communiqué, which calls for a ceasefire in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRCongo).


A note from the Presidential Palace states that the President, João Lourenço, spoke with the President of Burundi, Evariste Ndayishimiye, "within the scope of coordinating the Luanda and Nairobi process, regarding the prevailing security situation in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo".

"The conversation between the two heads of state focused on the need to implement the Luanda Communiqué, which calls for a ceasefire" in eastern DRCongo.

The Luanda Communiqué resulted from a mini-summit that took place in the capital, at the invitation of President João Lourenço, and which determined a set of initiatives with a view to achieving peace in the DRCongo.

Eastern DRC has been mired in conflict for over two decades, fueled by rebel militias and the army, despite the presence of the United Nations peacekeeping mission (MONUSCO).
