A UN senior official said on Wednesday that the United Nations will soon re-establish military cooperation with the Democratic Republic of Congo to assist the army in combating rebels in the east part of the country.
The decision to support the Congolese army was made after the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon paid a visit to Kinshasa last week.
"We will be in the next few days in a position to resume all the support we give to the FARDC," the Congolese army, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The UN military support had the aim of targeting the two rebel groups, the Ugandan ADF rebels and insurgents from the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), an ethnic Hutu militia based in the east of the country for more than two decades.
In February 2015, UN peacekeeping troops withdrew its support from the DR Congo to protest the appointment of two generals to lead the combat who are on the list of human rights violators.
Last year, the United Nations had announced plans to combat the FDLR but these went lopsided as differences emerged between the 20,000-strong MONUSCO force and Kinshasa.
Following two decades of turmoil in the eastern DR Congo, much of it sparked by the lucrative trade in minerals, UN officials are pushing for the disarming of dozens of rebel and separatist groups.
