The agreement was signed on Tuesday in Tanzaniaâ€™s capital Dar es Salaam in the presence of Tanzanian President John Magufuli and his CongoleseÂ counterpart President Joseph Kabila.
â€śWe have already discovered oil in the western parts of Lake Albert, and thereâ€™s a great possibility that thereâ€™s also oil in Lake Tanganyika, therefore, joint exploration is the way to go for mutual benefits,â€ť President Kabila said at a press conference.
