China has called on the main opposition in the Democratic Republic of Congo to join negotiations with President Joseph Kabila to help ease tensions. According to China's deputy representative to the United Nations, Wu Haitao, President Kabila is committed to advancing national dialogue and safeguarding stability in the DRC. In October, Kabila's government signed a deal with some members of the opposition -- pushing elections back to April 2018. However the main opposition has boycotted talks, accusing Kabila of wanting to cling to power.
