The conference which was opened by the French President Francois Hollande at the Elysee palace yesterday, will have specific meetings on the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic.

The President announced his call while meeting Senator Feingold, the United States envoy to the Great lakes region at the Mandarin Oriental Paris Hotel on the sidelines of the conference.

“The Kampala talks deal with the root causes of the conflict and if supported by the international community, they would provide a permanent solution,” Museveni said.

The President said that over 7 million Congolese are refugees in neighbouring countries which poses a threat to the security of the region.

“Militias including ADF, Interahamwe and the genocidaires who are operating on the Congolese territory must be handled to ensure permanent peace,” he added.

President Museveni told his visitor that the talks had achieved much and what was remaining were declarations from the Congolese government, the groups that are fighting the government and the guarantor of the talks.

On the war against Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army remnants operating in the Central African Republic, the President said that the hunt was going on very well and that 12 rebels had been killed by the UPDF.

He thanked the American government for the assistance given to Uganda in the hunt against Joseph Kony.

“Kony’s problem will be sorted out very soon,” Museveni told the Senator.

The Senator hailed President Museveni for his efforts to find African solutions to the Continent’s problems.

“Uganda has done much in Somalia and helped in providing solutions to regional conflicts,” Senator Feingold said in turn.

Meanwhile, President Museveni has warned that Uganda will not accept poor investors to operate in Uganda.

“The country needs people with money. We have enough poor people in Uganda. We don’t need more poor people,” the President said while meeting investors from Spain and France.

He emphasised that Uganda needs investors with the knowledge and money and urged them to invest in milk processing, manufacturing of foods, processing fruits and bananas.

The team which was led by Uganda’s Ambassador to France, Nimisha Madhvani, promised to visit Uganda very soon.
