Rwanda Wants 'African Solutions', Not 'Tribal Alliances'


Ongoing conflict in eastern Congo can best be resolved by African leaders, without outside interference, Rwanda's Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said in an AllAfrica interview on the sidelines of United Nations meetings in New York. Along with President Paul Kagame, she denies reports that Rwanda is backing the M23 rebel militia, as alleged in a United Nations 'experts' report.
