A wide view of the Security Council

Four months ago, the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the region was signed, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told a meeting of the Security Council on Thursday.

His remarks were made as the Security Council opened debate on the Great Lakes region, that is the countries surrounding Africa's great lakes – Burundi, Tanzania, the DR Congo, Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya

It was hoped, he said, that the Framework would help bring an end to the large-scale violence that has plagued the region for the past two decades.
