Kinshasa - The government of the Democratic Republic of
Congo and M23 rebels both announced Monday that peace talks to end fighting in
the highly unstable east have been suspended in Uganda.
"The negotiations are suspended," said government spokesperson
Lambert Mende. Roger Lumbala, a delegate of M23 in Kampala, said there was a
"blockage", adding that the rebels were ready to resume the talks
mediated by Uganda.
