Congo's Kabila Calls for Dialogue, Criticizes Opposition

Updated on

Democratic Republic of Congo President Joseph Kabila used his state of the nation address to call for support for a national political dialogue to discuss the organization of elections next year and criticized opposition parties for rejecting the talks.

“It is not through violence that we will resolve our differences and our solutions will not come from the United Nations, or from foreign countries in the East or in the West but rather from ourselves and through a Congolese dialogue,” Kabila said in a speech Monday to both houses of government.
