THE EASTAFRICAN , July 25 2005 - The disarmament and demobilisation of combatants in the area around eastern Congo, involving mainly Ugandan and Rwandan soldiers, has been identified by regional foreign ministers and security experts as an initial action that could help minimise conflicts in the region.

The African Union is expected to embark on a disarmament, demobilisation and resettlement (DDR) programme that, together with a joint initiative including 11 countries in the region, is being seen as a catalyst to ending the violence in the Great Lakes Region.
