Congolese officials were in talks Sunday with representatives of M23, the rebel group that last week took control of the eastern Congo city of Goma, according to Ugandan officials.
Rebels believed to be backed by Rwanda resumed mortar and machine gun fire on Monday at a village just 3 kilometers (2 miles) outside of the crucial, provincial capital of Goma, hours after saying they were halting fighting in order to negotiate with the government of Congo.
A Rwandan-backed rebel group advanced to within two miles of Goma, a crucial provincial capital in eastern Congo, marking the first time that rebels have come so close since 2008.
"We are waiting to hear from Runiga when he will be back from Kampala," said Col. Kazarama.
Mr. Runiga is still in Kampala and no official response to the demands from the regional summit is expected before his return to Congo, said Col. Kazarama in Goma.
