Sensing Threat, DRC’s President Felix Tshisekedi Seeks Help from Donald Trump

After several years of deadly battles and the destruction of several cities, ISIS was defeated in Syria by the international coalition and Arab-Kurdish troops on the ground.

The question that arises after this defeat is where are the bases of Daesh going to be established? On the side of the international community, she welcomed the neutralization of the Islamic State group as a great relief.


But this terrorist organization has not yet said its last word. It can be reborn from the ashes at any time and this worries at the highest level the president of the DR Congo, Felix Tshisekedi.

During his stay in Washington as part of  the Atlantic Council , DRC President Felix Tshisekedi sounded the alarm.

According to the Congolese head of state, Daesh could seek to settle in Africa. “It’s easy to see how the defeat of Daesh, the Islamic State, in Syria and Iraq could lead to a situation where these groups will now attempt to settle in Africa and take advantage of widespread poverty and the situation. chaos, such as in Beni and Butembo, to install their caliphate, “said President Felix Tshisekedi.

Assuming the violence that is taking place in this region of the DRC to “local and foreign” armed groups, the President of the Republic quoted recent military information which, according to him, mention an “Islamic threat” emanating from the ADF, a Ugandan army militia based in the DRC.

During his talks in Washington, President Felix Tshisekedi said he was looking for military cooperation with the United States to help equip the Congolese army and improve its intelligence capabilities. This support, he added, is also essential to facilitate regional cooperation in the face of the threat posed by terrorism.
