Erneste Kyaviro, spokesman for North Kivu governor Julien Paluku, told the Reuters news agency on Tuesday that Rwanda had invaded eastern DRC.
“It’s not a rebellion, it’s an invasion,” he said, referring to the ongoing fighting between M23 rebels and Congolese troops.
“We didn’t think that the Rwandan army would be throwing all its might into Congolese territory.”
Kyaviro appealed for a forceful response by the international community, especially Western nations, to pressure Rwanda to halt its alleged support for the rebellion.
