Rwanda and the DR Congo have accused each other of aiding armed militias in the border region

Angolan President João Lourenço says the Democratic Republic of Congo has agreed to release two Rwandan soldiers it detained last week, amid rising border tensions.

Mr Lourenço – who’s acting as a mediator – made the announcement after separate talks with his Congolese and Rwandan counterparts.

His office said Félix Tshisekedi and Paul Kagame had agreed to meet face-to-face in Angola, but didn’t give a date.

According to BBC reports, Rwanda and the DR Congo have accused each other of aiding armed militias in the border region and encouraging attacks.
