US welcomes arrest of Congolese rebel leader
State Department spokesman Robert Wood said on Friday the episode was “a good sign of co-operation” among the governments of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.
He would not say whether the United States – either the Obama administration or the Bush administration, which it replaced this week – played a role in Nkunda’s capture.
Wood said, however, that both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will “take a very strong interest in trying to promote peace and stability on the (African) continent in general.”
