While the government understands the need of the government of the DRC to talk to these genocidal groups to cease their activities on DRC territory and disarm, [the Rwanda] government is gravely concerned by the information that the United Nations, the European Union and some countries plan to sit on the same table with a group that committed the last horrific genocide of the 20th century.Considering that the entire world turned its back on Rwanda during the genocide, it is nearly impossible that the "respect, honour, and moral standing" of the UN, the US, the EU, and others could be tarnished any further.
"Rwanda believes that such a course of action would be an indelible blot on the respect, honour, and moral standing of the bodies and countries in question," says the communique, released on April 12.
