MONUSCO committed to ending the recruitment of child soldiers into armed groups


Kinshasa, 12 February 2016 - Maman Sambo Sidikou, Special Representative of the  United Nations Secretary-General in the DRC, points out that the objective of the celebration of this day is to raise public awareness on the suffering faced by child soldiers around the world and in the Democratic Republic in particular.
« It is regrettable to note that the armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo continue to recruit children in large numbers, thus exposing them to great risks and denying them the enjoyment of their fundamental rights. It is imperative, in the best interest of children, to pool our efforts in order to create a security and judicial environment conducive to prevention and protection of children’s rights in the context of the armed conflict in the DRC, » stated the Head of MONUSCO on this occasion.
