1 min read

Belgium’s King Philippe said he reaffirmed his “profound regrets” for his country’s brutal colonial past in Democratic Republic of Congo on his first trip to the central African nation. For more analysis, joining FRANCE 24 is Kris Berwouts, Independent Expert on Conflict, Security and Democracy in Central Africa. He describes the visit of the Belgian king as an important event. “It’s the first time that the present king is visiting the country.” But the real question is “what will the speech do to contribute to the process of rewriting colonial history and redefine the relationship between Belgium and the Congo in a truly decolonized partnership.”
