DR Congo President Félix Tshisekedi has vowed to address a wide range of issues in his country, including war and insecurity.

“We are here under the guidance of our two Heads of States. We are meeting to exchange on the common menace which is affecting the two states; in terms of terrorists, negative propaganda,” he said.
