Félix Tshisekedi spoke about this at the annual general meeting of the United Nations. The 57-year-old president says that the corona virus has hit African countries too badly.

Not a postponement of payment, which Congo has already received. Tshisekedi would like a total cancellation of all charges they borrowed.

"In order for developing countries to truly emerge from the crisis, and ensure the post-COVID-19 era, the efforts of the international community should include cancellation and other debt relief", said Tshisekedi.

Tshisekedi, who has been the new president of Congo since 2019, asks for "More international solidarity".

“All these measures for support or additional funding for developing countries must not be conditional”.
