According to Vital Kamerhe, the DRC’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.
