All citizens residing in the three provinces are urged to provide the embassy with their personal details by December 10 so that their evacuation to a safe place could be organized as soon as possible.
Those who refuse to evacuate from the provinces or do not provide the embassy with the requested information will be personally responsible for dealing with all consequences, the embassy stressed.

Media reported on November 21 that eight Chinese nationals were kidnapped in an armed attack on a Chinese gold mine in the province of South Kivu. The relations were further strained by the local authorities accusing the Chinese companies of working illegally with no licenses.
