As part of the U.N. brokered peace settlement, the Congo agreed to integrate elements of the former rebel movements into its armed forces. Under South African and Belgian military guidance, three brigades (about 3,250 troops each) have completed an intensive light infantry training program. The results have been satisfactory. The first two brigades are already operating as part of the national military forces. The third has just completed training, and is to be assigned to work with MONUC, the UN peacemaking force, in the eastern Ituri region.
