Uganda not fighting in Congo - official
Fri, 03 Aug 2012 10:12p.m.
Uganda's foreign affairs minister says the country's forces are not fighting in the Congo and that Uganda's president is actively trying to help resolve the conflict there.
Minister Okello Oryem told reporters in Kampala on Friday that allegations of Uganda's military involvement in the Congo are "rubbish." He said President Yoweri Museveni visited Angola this week to consult with officials on how best to find a regional solution to the Congo violence.
Next week Uganda will host a conference on regional security that President Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Joseph Kabila of Congo are expected to attend.
The U.N. has accused Rwanda of supporting M23 rebels in eastern Congo, and Congolese officials are investigating accusations that the Ugandan military is also involved.
