Security Council voted this week to extend for another year and expand the arms embargo and related sanctions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which have been in place since 2003.   Council members voted unanimously to continue the regime of sanctions, which consists of an arms embargo against all armed groups that are not part of either the Government’s integrated army (known as the FARDC) or police units.
