1)#Rwanda is desperately looking for a way to invalidate the #Luanda Peaceful agreement which says that M23 should withdraw from their occupied areas!They had been trying to trick Congo into signing new agreements so that all about Luanda is forgotten!
2)The day #Rwanda signed the #Luanda agreement,they were looking for a way to bring #East #African military in #Congo. #EAC was promising to fight M23 but it was a trick.That #EAC military was to be a backup to #Monusco which may be forced to leave soon by angry population!
3)While #Congo was hoping to attack #M23 with the help of #EAC,EAC was timing to just settle down in territories occupied by M23 as a buffer zone.EAC was to do the same way Monusco has been sitting there,only facilitating to loot Congo's natural resources!Same agenda!

East African leaders have agreed to assemble troops to combat armed groups in the eastern Democratic Republic of #Congo #DRC.

What is this joint force and what are its objectives?

@PMvandeWalle takes a close look in our latest Q&A.

[Thread] ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡โ€ฆ
The East African Community (EAC) @jumuiya is composed of #DRCongo ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฉ, #Tanzania ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ, #Kenya ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ช, #Burundi ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฎ, #Rwanda ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ผ, #SouthSudan ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ & #Uganda ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฌ.

The EACโ€™s joint force was designed to respond to the rampant insecurity in eastern DRC, a serious concern for the entire region.
Cyclic violence, displacement and insecurity due to the presence of armed groups has been plaguing the region for almost 30 years.

Yet an actual deployment of a regional force is unprecedented.โ€ฆ

Over the last two week I have been in various meetings and conversations about about the effectiveness of @UNPeacekeeping, including most recently about #MINUSMA, and here are some ideas that I think are relevant for all UN #peaceoperations and #stabilization missions ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ
Note in this thread @UNPeacekeeping is a proxy for the full spectrum of UN peace operations, covering #SPMs & #peacekeeping operations #A4P #EPON ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

1/ It's fair to say @UNPeacekeeping๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ณ is currently in a financial crisis caused largely but not solely by the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Trump administration. Here's a thread explaining the state of play
2/ First a caveat: the numbers fluctuate regularly so what follows are just snapshots. @UNPeacekeeping & its troop- & police-contributing countries (T/PCCs) are reimbursed after the fact. Here's an explainer of how it works via @ipinstGOโ€ฆ
3/ When UN Member States don't pay their @UNPeacekeeping dues in full and on-time it hurts 1) T/PCCs; 2) mission effectiveness in the field; and 3) the reputation of the UN's๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ณ general effective system for financing #PeaceOperations.
