The March 23 movement called for a direct dialogue with the Congolese government and declared that they are not interested in the ceasefire agreement announced in Luanda on Wednesday.

The ceasefire agreement provides for the withdrawal of the March 23 Movement from the occupied areas in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and their return to their original positions.

The agreement also provided for the use of force to oblige the rebels to withdraw in case of refusal.

The Angolan capital Luanda, hosted a mini-summit on Wednesday, in light of the high level of tension between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighbour Rwanda, on the background of the fierce fighting between the Congolese army and the March 23 movement in the east of the country.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo accuses Rwanda of supporting these movements, which the latter denies.
