The UN special envoy for the African Great Lakes region, Mary Robinson, has arrived in Goma in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. She and other high-level international diplomats are visiting the region after the last week of August saw the heaviest fighting in months between the M23 rebel movement and Congolese government forces backed by a new, more offensive brigade of UN peacekeepers. The rebels retreated by several kilometres at the weekend and diplomatic efforts are due to culminate in a summit of regional leaders on Thursday. RFI talked to Timo Mueller, an analyst with a US-based conflict resolution lobby group, who is based in Goma.
