President Bush joined President Mbeki, Chairman of the African Union, to promote stability in the Great Lakes region and urged President Kagame to end support to Congolese rebel groups and begin withdrawal from Congo. President Bush also called on President Kabila to end support to the Rwandan rebels and arrest genocide suspects who had sought refuge in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. President Kagame announced that same afternoon that Rwandan forces would withdraw from Congo.
