The UK continues to monitor the situation in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo closely through our diplomatic Posts in Kinshasa, Kigali and Goma, and through the UN, including the Group of Experts. We welcome the current lull in fighting. But we remain very concerned by continuing reports of Rwandan support for the M23 rebels, by the humanitarian situation, and by reports that the M23 rebels are setting up a parallel administration, and are committing human rights abuses.
