I strongly condemn the M23's advance towards Goma and call on it immediately to desist from further violence.
I am particularly concerned by the risk to civilians, the population of Goma and refugees in surrounding areas. I urge those with influence over M23 to call on them to stop fighting and not to provide them any external support.
I call for a cessation of hostilities and for all parties to engage to resolve this crisis without further bloodshed.
Any British nationals in Goma should leave.
