THE Angolan capital, Luanda, was yesterday scheduled to host ministers from Uganda, Congo and representatives of the United Nations to discuss establishment of the Ituri Province Pacification Commission (IPC).

State minister for foreign affairs in charge of regional cooperation, Col. Kahinda Otafiire, arrived in Luanda yesterday to represent Uganda, sources said.

IPC is an initiative by President Yoweri Museveni and his DRC counterpart, Joseph Kabila. The body is supposed to begin work next week and complete its mandate by March 10, according to the official programme.

Under the IPC programme, Uganda is supposed to withdraw its troops from Bunia, northeastern Congo, on March 20. Under the programme, mechanisms to maintain public order and re-estasblish the administrative authority in the troubled province will be done by March 18.

At the conclusion of the two-day summit in Dar-es-salaam, Museveni and Kabila reaffirmed their commitment to the Luanda accord of September 2002, which calls for the withdrawal of Ugandan troops from the DRC and the normalisation of relations.
