The top United Nations official in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is disappointed that peace talks between the government and the rebel M23 movement concluded without an agreement.

In a briefing to the Security Council on Monday, Martin Kobler, head of the UN mission in the country (MONUSCO), said UN and other envoys had tried to instil "a sense of urgency" in the negotiating parties.
