Uganda: June 17, 2000


Rwanda claimed it was withdrawing its forces from Kisangani, but accused Uganda of reneging on the withdrawal deal.

June 16 , 2000; After several days of political posturing (agreeing to withdraw from Kisangani, then backtracking) Rwanda and Uganda said they would withdraw from the city. A UN source siad the deal calls for Rwandan and Ugandan troops to withdraw 100 kilometers form Kisangani. The UN Security Council is trying to draft an agreement that would have Rwanda and Uganda withdrawing completely from the Congo. Rwandan leaders have said that their forces won't withdraw from the DRC until they are assured that Hutu "genocide militias" (such as the Interahamwe) won't attack Rwanda from the DRC.
