Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Jendayi Frazer, has voiceforously trashed the recent so-called U.N. experts’ report on the alleged Rwandan involvement in the DRC.
Appearing on AL JAZEERA’s English broadcast, Frazer pointed out how flawed the report is due to its bias towards Rwanda. Saying that she had read the report unlike many critics, she was left wanting due to lack of evidence.
Al Jazeera’s Teymoor Nabili who interviewed Frazer was left speechless and caught off guard as Frazer listed a litany of the UN report’s shortcomings. As has become the custom with Rwanda’s accusers, Nabili did not have any concrete evidence to back up his accusatory questions but simply regagitated information previously circulated in main stream media.
Frazer eloquently pointed out that accusing Rwanda or withholding aid will not solve the human suffering going on in the DRC. She instead called on the international community to work with regional leaders to find a lasting solution to the crisis in the DRC.
Rwanda’s continuing contribution of peace keeping troops in Darfur and Haiti was duly noted.
