The M23 called on members of the Congo police and military to register for re-training by its troops which is meant to integrate them into the rebel movement's new style of leadership even as the rebels, Thursday, rejected international calls to pull out of the strategic eastern city of Goma, demanding peace talks with President Joseph Kabila before ending an offensive that has stoked fears of a wider conflict and humanitarian catastrophe. The political leader of the M23 rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Jean-Marie Runiga Lugerero headed to Uganda on Thursday for talks with President Yoweri Museveni, currently the Chief of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region.
