Uganda and Rwanda have been accused of arming and commanding M32 rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo according to a new confidential UN Security Council report about the crisis on DRC.

A 44 page report viewed by Reuters claims Rwanda defense minister is commanding M23 rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo and also states that Uganda has been backing the rebels.

The claims comes after Uganda’s offer to broker peace talks between M23 rebels in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the countries government was turned down.

Uganda has  also been hosting several talks about restoring peace in DRC  but some of the efforts suggested at the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) summits like establishing a joint force have since failed to be effected.
