Agreement Between Uganda And Rwanda

In the agreement signed in the Angolan capital, the two sides agreed to respect the sovereignty of the other, refrain from any appeal to destabilize each other`s territory and resume cross-border activities “as soon as possible,” as indicated in a copy of the agreement seen by Reuters. Rwandan dissidents, particularly members of the Rwandan National Congress (RNC) involved in anti-Rwanda operations in neighbouring Uganda, could soon be brought to justice in Kigali after the signing of an extradition agreement between the two countries. Kagame said: “I deeply thank the Angolan and Congolese leaders for their attitude and fraternal commitment to helping us find solutions between Uganda and Rwanda,” his office tweeted. KAMPALA, OUGANDA – Ugandan and Rwandan officials failed On Saturday to agree on most of the issues between them: mutual accusations of destabilizing acts, protection of the rights and freedoms of other nationals, and resumption of cross-border activities. The most recent death came just days after Uganda released nine Rwandans accused of illegal possession of firearms, with Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa saying Kampala withdrew the charge in accordance with a recent agreement between the two countries. The evil blood between Rwanda and Uganda has increased in recent months, raising fears that the dispute could threaten regional trade and delight neighbouring countries. Once the measures taken have been notified to the heads of state, the mediators would meet within 15 days to reopen the borders and then normalize relations between the two countries. President Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame congratulated Angolan President Joao Manuel Goncalves Lourenco and the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Antoine Tshisekedi, for their commitment and commitment to finding a peaceful solution within the framework of reconciliation between the two sister countries (Uganda and Rwanda). “There`s no border, there`s only relationships — it`s a family affair,” Angelo Izama, an independent Ugandan analyst, said of the tense dynamics between neighbors.

According to the agreement, the two sides agreed on the creation of a commission for the implementation of the pact, under the leadership of the heads of the secret services and the foreign ministers of each country. The two heads of state and government signed an agreement, called the Luanda-Memorandum of Understanding, which was attested by Tshisekedi and Lourenco. Later, when President Museveni stopped in Katuna Town and the Kabal municipality, he explained to Ugandans what led to the closure of the Uganda-Rwanda border. He said the closure was caused by internal conflicts in Rwanda, particularly within the RPF ranks, when some RPF members disagreed with the Rwandan government, with the majority taking in refugees in South Africa.
