Rwanda said Oct. 1 it reserves the right to review future engagements with the United Nations. It also cautioned that a U.N. report stating that Rwandan troops committed genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo could trigger regional instability. The U.N. report, released Oct. 1, documents hundreds of atrocities in the former Zaire between 1993 and 2003, Reuters reports.

“Rwanda will continue to defend herself against all attempts to rewrite our history in any form and in any forum, including reserving the right to review our various engagements with the U.N.,” Louise Mushikiwabo, foreign minister and government spokeswoman, said in a statement.
