Congo Standoff Requires African Solution

Speaker: John Campbell, Ralph Bunche Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies, Council on Foreign Relations
December 14, 2011

Campbell emphasizes that the standoff is "a major political problem in which the United States and other friends of Congo have remarkably little leverage," and recommends withholding support for President Joseph Kabila's government until the situation clarifies.
