Britain will withhold £21 million of aid to Rwanda amid concerns that the state is supporting rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
International Development Secretary Justine Greening said the money was being withheld due to "creditable and compelling reports" President Paul Kagame had breeched aid agreements.
The Government has already set out its concerns over credible and compelling reports of Rwandan involvement with M23 in DRC. This evidence constitutes a breach of the partnership principles set out in the Memorandum of Understanding and, as a result, I have decided not to release the next payment of budget support to Rwanda.
