Speaking to ANGOP shortly before leaving Luanda for the DRC, Foreign Minister Georges Chikoti said that the monitoring group of the thirteen member countries of the Conference on the Great Lakes Region, SADC and African Union, will meet to assess the situation in line of the new government established two weeks ago.

For three days, the task force intends to be aware of the agenda for elections until the end of 2017, to review compliance with the Framework Agreement and to better understand the situation of Congolese refugees in Angola as a consequence of the current political crisis and military that affect DRC.

The Framework Agreement for Peace, Stability and Cooperation in DRC, signed in February 2013 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is the appropriate mechanism for the peaceful resolution of the crisis and conflict in the eastern DRC, safeguarding its sovereignty and integrity as an indispensable condition for their economic and social development.

The  President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Joseph Kabila, appointed on May 9, the new government headed by Prime Minister Bruno Tshibala.
