  • Description

    RIVER TRAFFIC BETWEEN CONGO-KINSHASA AND CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE WAS RESUMED TUESDAY (FEBRUARY 4). THE LINK BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES WAS SEVERED IN OCTOBER LAST YEAR FOLLOWING THE EXECUTION IN KINSHASA OF THE FORMER REBEL LEADER PIERRE MULELE.

    THE NORMALISATION OF TRAFFIC BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES FOLLOWS THE RECENT VISIT TO BRAZZAVILLE OF PRESIDENT ETIENNE EYADEMA OF TOGO, WHO HAD BEEN ATTENDING THE SUMMIT CONFERENCE OF THE AFRO-MALAGASY COMMON ORGANISATION (OCAM) IN KINSHASA.

    CONGO-BRAZZAVILLE WAS NOT REPRESENTED AT THE OCAM SUMMIT BUT PRESIDENT MARIEN N'GOUABI SENT A TELEGRAM OF SUPPORT TO PRESIDENT DIORI OF NIGER ON HIS ELECTION FOR A THIRD TERM AS PRESIDENT OF OCAM.

    DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO DONGOS, WHICH WERE ALSO CUT BY BRAZZAVILLE IN OCTOBER, HAVE NOT BEEN RESUMED, BUT IT WAS ANNOUNCED AT THE OCAM SUMMIT MEETING THAT BOTH CONGOS, THE CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC AND CHAD WOULD START TALKS ON RENEWING FULL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS.

    (THE BORDER BETWEEN CONGO-KINSHASA AND RWANDA WAS ALSO REOPENED YESTERDAY (FEBRUARY 4). IT HAD BEEN CLOSED SINCE THE BEGINNING OF 1968. THE TWO COUNTRIES HAVE RESUMED FULL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS).
