    Luanda, Angola – (African Boulevard News) – The President of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Félix Tshisekedi, is set to attend the next summit of the International Conference on Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) scheduled to take place in Luanda, Angola. The meeting is slated to be held on May 19-20, 2023, and Tshisekedi’s participation is expected to strengthen ties between the two countries and the entire African region.

    Despite his recent distancing himself from the East African Community, sources say that Tshisekedi has continued to be involved with other regional organizations, mainly the ICGLR, which is made up of twelve countries in the central and eastern parts of the continent. The aim of this organization is to promote peace, stability, and development in the region through various means, including dialogue and cooperation between member states.

    Tshisekedi’s visit to Angola is expected to strengthen the ties between the two countries and consolidate the efforts of the ICGLR to bring stability to the Great Lakes region, which has suffered from decades of conflict and instability.

    “The participation of President Tshisekedi in the ICGLR summit in Luanda is a major step towards consolidating efforts to bring peace and stability to the Great Lakes region,” said an Angola-based analyst, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

    The summit will be an opportunity for regional leaders to discuss various issues, including security, economic development, and governance, and to find ways to address the many challenges facing the region. It is also expected to present an opportunity for Angola to showcase its economic potential and promote itself as a preferred destination for investment in Africa.

    The ICGLR summit is a crucial platform for African leaders to address pressing issues affecting the region, and Tshisekedi’s attendance is expected to add weight to discussions and help find lasting solutions to the many challenges facing the region. His presence is also expected to foster closer relations between Angola and the DRC, which will be essential to achieving peace and stability in the Great Lakes region.

    In conclusion, Tshisekedi’s participation in the ICGLR summit in Luanda is a significant step towards consolidating efforts to bring peace and stability to the Great Lakes region.
