The German Government calls on all sides to refrain from violence and to seek peaceful solutions using the mechanisms provided. 

We have taken note of the provisional results of the presidential elections published by the Congolese electoral commission. We have also taken note of the fact that these results have been contested by parts of the opposition.

We welcome the important role played by the Congolese civilian election observers throughout the electoral process.

We are coordinating our position closely with our partners in the European Union, Africa and the United Nations. The UN Security Council will consider the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on January 11.
