The Chinese embassy in the Democratic Republic of Congo convened a meeting this weekend with several Congolese government ministries, including the ministries of Foreign Affairs, Defense, Interior, as well as immigration officials and the General Administration of the Police, to discuss ongoing attacks against Chinese residents in the country. 

The China-Congo Security Joint Conference is a response to a wave of kidnappings, assaults, and robberies of Chinese citizens throughout the DRC. It aimed to strengthen coordination and information-sharing between the two governments and to boost support of Congolese law enforcement. They’re also planning to set up a reporting mechanism for Chinese expatriates.
