Insecurity in the East: Belgium gets involved, King Philippe mobilizes
The interminable security situation in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo ultimately concerned the Kingdom of Belgium. It is in this context that King Philippe received, this Friday, September 2, the Belgian ambassadors accredited to the countries of Central Africa for a working meeting at the Château de Laeken.
The discussion focuses on the situation in the Great Lakes region, particularly the security situation in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. No other details filtered out at the end of this meeting. Nevertheless, necessary analysts that Brussels is keen to improve its relations with its former colony by presenting a solution to insecurity in the East, so as not to let Kinshasa turn its gaze towards Moscow, which is already making beautiful eyes in several countries of Africa, forcing them to withdraw.
At the same time, the arrival in Kinshasa of the parliamentary commission charged with the important mission of examining the colonial past and its consequences in order to build together the future of relations on common bases is reported. The Delegation will conduct consultations with many actors. This Friday, she had talks with the Congolese Deputy Prime Minister in charge of Foreign Affairs, Christophe Lutundula Apala.
It should be noted that more than two months ago, Belgium acknowledged its role in the assassination of Patrice Emery Lumumba, and has now presented its “apologies” to the DRC, then repatriated his relics for a funeral. Worthy, 61 years after his tragic passing.
