Sanctions on Rwanda, Not Drones over DRCJennifer Fierberg, MSW Salem-News.com
In a press release the FDU-INKINGI has agreed that sanctions are more a more appropriate measure and do not agree that drones should be used.
(WASHINGTON DC) - The use of drones for surveillance, security and other situations has been a hotbed of controversy for many years and in many countries.
The UNSC proposed the use of unarmed surveillance drones over DRC in order to monitor the border between Rwanda and DRC much to the disagreement of the Rwandan diplomats at the UN. Many believe the use of drones is an unaccountable tactic to spy on neighboring areas that could possibly lead to military action. But, in a surprising statement by President Paul Kagame on Monday January 21, 2013 said he has no problem with the use of drones over DRC.
Many activists and journalists have stated that the use of drones is not a positive step in ending the crisis in the DRC and feel that sanctions on the Rwandan officials supporting the M23 rebel group would be a more effective solution. This is a step the UNSC has yet to take. The UNSC have sanctioned top members of the M23 rebel group but have yet to sanction those backing this group though military direction, finances and arms.
In a press release the FDU-INKINGI has agreed that sanctions are more a more appropriate measure and do not agree that drones should be used. The press release is as follows:
