The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is a central African country with a complex history of colonialism, independence, and conflict. The country was originally a private domain of the Belgian king (the Congo Free State), then became a Belgian colony (the Belgian Congo) in 19081. In 1960, the country gained independence under the name The Democratic Republic of Congo with Patrice Lumumba as the first Prime Minister. The country later changed its name to Zaire and back to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and experienced several wars and political crises. In October 2023, UN Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region Xia Huang warned that tensions between the two countries could lead to an open military confrontation, expressing his concerns about "the military strengthening in countries, the absence of direct high-level dialogue, and the persistence of hate speech. The two countries agreed in late November 2023 to a U.S.-brokered pact to bilaterally reduce military presence near the border, reduce hate speech, and refrain from efforts to affect one another’s political systems. Despite the agreement and initial promise of a seventy-two-hour ceasefire ahead of the DRC’s national election, ongoing, lethal conflict in eastern Congo has continued largely unabated into 2024.
