Egypt welcomes conciliation pact between Uganda, Rwanda
Foreign Ministry called for continuing course of collective work between African countries
Published in Daily News Egypt on 24 - 08 - 2019

Egypt welcomed the new agreement to end conflict between Rwanda and Uganda, describing it as positive move to boost bilateral economic and political relations.
In a last Friday statement, Egypt – the current chair of the African Union – said the only way to deal with the challenges that Africa is facing is to activate the "African solution for African problems" principle.
Egypt's Foreign Ministry called for continuing the course of collective work between the African countries to face the mutual challenges and achieve African peoples' ambitions.
Last Wednesday, presidents of Rwanda and Uganda signed a memorandum of understanding in the Angolan capital Lunda to end the conflict between the two countries which resulted in closing shared borders for six months.
Recently, Rwanda accused Uganda of supporting the anti-Kigali rebel movements, but Uganda denied the accusations. The two countries also exchanged accusations about mistreating citizens of each other.
The two sides agreed to respect each other's sovereignty, refrain from actions that destabilise the other's territory, and resume cross-border activities as soon as possible.
Tensions between the two countries have erupted since February when Rwanda closed border crossing with its neighbour Uganda, while later banned Rwandans from traveling to Uganda.
"We have agreed on a raft of issues that will be implemented between our two countries, largely meant to improve our security, trade, and political relations. Uganda is fully committed to enforcing this agreement," Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni tweeted after the signing.
