The UN peacekeeping chief says Congolese and UN troops have pushed back the M23 rebel group and it no longer poses a threat to Goma, one of the country's largest cities.
Herve Ladsous called the military action a “very significant achievement” that inflicted casualties on the M23 and likely led the rebels to resume talks with the government in neighbouring Uganda's capital, Kampala.
“The M23 group has been pushed back towards the north to such a place that it does not anymore pose the direct threat that it had posed for such a long time either on the city of Goma” or surrounding camps for displaced people and UN positions, he said.
Ladsous said that with the resumption of talks “diplomacy has become again the order of the day.” - Sapa-AP
