“Rwanda presented its rebuttal to the addendum to the Security Council. It is comprehensive and detailed, and we addressed each allegation line by line, point by point,” she added

Giving an example of allegation that Rwanda provided ammunitions to M23, Minister Mushikiwabo said this allegation is not true because bullets showed in photo presented in the report of Group of Expert are not used by Rwanda Defence Forces.

“We no longer possess the weapons whose photos are in the UN Group of Expert. We destroyed them in 2008 and one of the experts was a witness”

Minister Mushikiwabo added that there are no M23 members trained by Rwanda from Kanombe Military Camp as claimed by Group of Expert.

Kanombe military barracks houses residences, hospital and cemetery and cannot technically used as a military training.

Rwanda presented its rebuttal to the addendum to the Security Council; the final report will be released in November.

Germany, Netherlands, UK and United States have based on this report to cut develop aid to Rwanda.

In their report, UN experts said Congo warlord Bosco Ntaganda had met a top official in the Rwanda army in a Kigali suburb where they held a meeting while drinking beer in a bar.

However, the report could not name the official met by Ntaganda.

The development has put the credibility of UN experts on the spot, confirming Rwanda’s fears that such reports fuel instead of controlling the conflict that has plagued the Eastern part of Congo.
