The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) expects the conclusion of mediation by UN special envoy Olusegun Obasanjo and African Union representative Benjamin Mpaka, as the rebel threat has been removed.

Congolese Foreign Minister Alexis Thambwe Mwamb said on Tuesday that Kinshasa has already solved the problem of the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP) and that it sees no necessity of continuing the mediation.

Obasandjo and Mpaka, the former Nigerian and Tanzanian presidents, began to chair the negotiations between the Congolese government and the CNDP in Nairobi, Kenya, in early December.

The talks, however, led to nowhere because of the irreconcilable stand held by CNDP leader Laurent Nkunda, who threatened to topple the government after his fighters captured large swaths of territory in the eastern province of North Kivu.

Nkanda was arrested on Jan. 23 in Rwanda after fleeing a joint attack by the two neighboring countries. Dissident CNDP generals have signed a peace deal with the government.
