UN asks Congo leaders to dialogue

The UN Deputy Secretary-General has warned that Congo is likely to face violence and persistent instability unless political opponents hold talks to resolve an impasse over upcoming elections in the country.

Jan Eliasson told the UN Security Council that the tragic, and still preventable, outcome would reverse political, security and gains over the past few years, and require a response “beyond the capacity” of the UN peacekeeping mission in the country.

The opposition has expressed concern that the election set for November will be delayed so that president joseph Kabila will stay in power longer.

Eliasson strongly backed efforts by the African Union, European Union, UN, and the International Organization of French-speaking Countries to arrange a dialogue with all Congolese parties, preferably by the end of July.

In a speech last week, President Joseph Kabila warned politicians against any attempts to destabilize the country, and said voter registration would begin this month.
