To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they will take in order to contribute to help prevent officials of Rwanda from providing support to militia groups operating in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
Lord Howell of Guildford (Conservative)
We have had, and continue to have, extensive high level contact with the Rwandan Government in Kigali and in the UK during which we have raised the UK's serious concerns about the conflict in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. If Rwanda has breached Security Council resolutions by breaking the United Nations' arms embargo, we will evaluate our position. Like its partners, the UK will continue to monitor the situation closely, on which basis it will consider any further action.
