The RCD factions have agreed to set up a reconciliation committee to iron out their differences, and all three groups have agreed to set up a political negotiation committee, comprising three members each, to travel to Lusaka for pre-summit talks, AFP news agency reported. That arrangement will serve Uganda’s purposes well as the backer of two of the groups, one observer at the Kabale meeting told IRIN on Monday. The three groups have convened another meeting for Wednesday 16 June in Kabale to draw up a list of all demands and a strategy for the whole process ahead - a package regarding a cessation of hostilities, a ceasefire, an inter-Congolese debate and a peace conference for the Great Lakes region, according to a report on Belgian RTBF radio on Sunday. The process is intended to ultimately result in the unification of the armed opposition’s infrastructures, the report added.
