United Nations Security Council will travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo next week to gauge tensions over the holding of presidential elections.
The fifteen council envoys will visit Kinshasa, Goma and Beni from November ten to fourteen for talks with President Laurent Kabila, opposition leaders and civil society.
Senegalese Ambassador, Fode Seck, who holds the presidency of the council this month, told Journalists they were in a very tense pre-election context.
He said the council considered it would be useful to go to DRC to speak to all the players as part of its prevention role.
Anti-Kabila demonstrations in Kinshasa in September turned violent, killing some forty-nine people.
