I am heartened that tensions in the Great Lakes region have eased in the past year. In particular, I welcome last week's summit between President Kabila of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and President Kagame of Rwanda.
I commend both leaders' commitment to promote peace and stability in the Great Lakes region. I also welcome the exchange of ambassadors by the two countries.
