Uganda has resolved to pull out of all regional efforts, including peace keeping missions in Somalia, Central African Republic and DR Congo, over a leaked UN report, which accuses Uganda of supporting Congolese M23 rebels.

In a statement to Parliament, Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi described the allegations as baseless, unfair and malicious. He said Uganda was acting in good faith and sacrificing a lot to bring peace to the region and deserved better understanding, respect and fairness from the UN and the region.
