He emphasised the role of dialogue and mediation and increasing the role of local authorities.

The implementation of agreements on peace, security and cooperation between the Democratic Republic of Congo and countries in the region should be continuously prioritised to jointly address cross-border security challenges, he suggested.

The same day, the UN Security Council agreed to adopt a resolution extending sanctions against some individuals and organisations in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
