Uganda: May 15, 2000


It looks like Uganda and Rwanda are going to avoid a war. The latest reports indicate both nations are pulling most of their forces out of the DRC city of Kisangani. The pullback agreement says both nations can have 215 soldiers in Kisangani to patrol the airport, bridges and road junctions until U.N. observers arrive. Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni Apparently negotiated the deal. Uganda accuses Rwanda of starting the latest round of fighting. An AFP report gave a tactical picture of the situation in Kisangani. The Rwandan army controls the Tshopo Bridge north of Kisangani, which gives it the ability to block Ugandan reinforcements. Both sides have entrenchments around the Bangoka aiport, 15 kilometers northeast of the city.
