Ahead of Rwanda visit, Blinken says US ‘concerned’ by reports of Rwandan support for DRC rebels

On the eve of his visit to Rwanda on Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said his country is “concerned” by “credible” reports that Rwanda is supporting rebels in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The resurgence of the M23 group in Congo’s restive east has exacerbated tensions between the neighbours, with Kinshasa accusing Kigali of backing the rebels.

Blinken was speaking in the Congolese capital Kinshasa, where he arrived on Tuesday for the second leg of a three-nation African tour and met President Felix Tshisekedi.
