KINSHASA, Wednesday - The governments of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo have set up a joint commission to establish peace in the war-torn Ituri region of northeastern DRC and along the countriesâ€™ shared border.
According to Vital Kamerhe, the DRCâ€™s commissioner general in charge of peace in the Great Lakes region, the commission would set up a framework within which both countries could work together to establish peace in Ituri. It would also monitor the Rwenzori mountain area. He said the commission was to avoid a vacuum in the region after the withdrawal of Ugandan troops.
