Democratic Republic of Congo – Attack against soldiers of the MONUSCO
France strongly condemns the attack which wounded seven Pakistani peacekeepers of the UN Stabilisation Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) yesterday in South-Kivu. France extends its solidarity to Pakistan and the families of the peacekeepers.
France calls for the authorities of the Democratic Republic of Congo to ensure those responsible of this attack will be brought before justice.
France is very concerned about the situation in the Kivus, impacting especially the civilian population. It restates its full support to the MONUSCO, which should be enabled to carry out fully its civilian protection mission, and calls all Congolese actors to respect its action, in particular in Eastern DRC.
