U.s secretary of state Antony Blinken has called on the President of Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, to address election concerns after he was sworn in for a new term.


Blinken, through the state department spokesman Matthew Miller, encouraged President Tshisekedi to address the concerns raised by election observation missions by taking steps to promote confidence in the democratic process going forward.


Tshisekedi officially triumphed with 73.47 percent and the vote passed largely peacefully in a country long torn by violence and instability.


Blinken also spoke to Tshisekedi about the troubled east of DR Congo amid cautious hopes to bring stability after years of unrest.
