Ambassador Cohen Delivers Remarks at the UN Security Council Briefing on the Situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo


“Mr. President, we want to acknowledge the millions of Congolese throughout the DRC who exercised their right to vote last week after two years of delay. Despite confusion, technical issues, weather, and long lines, the citizens of the DRC showed the world that they have a voice. The United States stands with the people of Congo at this historic moment and it is they who should determine their country’s future.”
