DR Congo refuses to sign M23 ‘accord’ in Kampala
The Democratic Republic of Congo has refused to sign a deal with the rebels it defeated last week, the country's information minister has said.
Lambert Mende said the title of the Ugandan-mediated document was the problem, not its contents.
It should be called a declaration not an accord as that gave too much credibility to the rebels, he said.
Last week, the M23 rebel group ended its 18-month insurgency in eastern DR Congo and surrendered.
The two sides had been due to sign the document in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.
