Rwanda will seek clarity from Bujumbura over the alleged crossing of the Democratic Republic of Congo-based rebels into Burundi.
Burundi stated that it does not need to ally with the rebels since the country has “sufficient capabilities to defend itself against any aggressor.” It added that Rwanda does not have proof of FDLR’s presence in Burundi.
The Burundi government raised a counter-accusation, saying Kigali provided false documents to Rwandans to travel to Burundi and fight alongside forces opposed to President Pierre Nkurunziza’s regime.
