Efforts are under way to mend relations between the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the UN Mission in the country (MONUSCOmart).

That's according to the head of MONUSCO.

The mission recently suspended its cooperation with the government because of its refusal to replace two military commanders implicated in human rights abuses in the country.

MONUSCO is authorized to protect civilians, humanitarian personnel and human rights defenders under eminent threat of physical violence.

Isabelle Dupuis asked the head of MONUSCO, Martin Kobbler, about the relations between the mission and the Congolese government.
