BRUSSELS - MEPs Antonio Tajani (Fi-Ppe), Salvatore De Meo (Fi-Ppe), Herbert Dorfmann (Svp-Ppe), Fulvio Martusciello (Fi-Ppe), Giuseppe Milazzo (Fi-Ppe), Aldo Patriciello (Fi- Ppe) and Massimiliano Salini (Fi-Ppe)

today presented a question to the High Representative Josep Borrell on the attack that took

place yesterday in the Democratic Republic of Congo which

cost the lives of the Italian ambassador Luca Attanasio and the carabiniere Vittorio Iacovacci

.

The question reminds us how the Congo has for years been the scene of violence, attacks, killings and human rights violations by local and foreign armed groups, particularly in the eastern region where yesterday's attack took place.

Asking the EU to

step up its efforts to ensure stability in the Goma region

, Forza Italia MEPs are

calling for diplomatic action to ensure a transparent investigation

that ascertains responsibility and causes, in particular by asking why the World Food Program convoy does not had an adequate supply.

Finally, the High Representative is asked to

renew the EU strategy in Congo

, with a new military mission, after the stop in Eupol and Eusec, to finally build peace in Congo.
