President Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame are expected to attend another summit in Luanda, Angola to sign a deal that will likely end hostilities which culminated into the closure of the Uganda- Rwanda border.
According to Xinhua news agency, the President of Angola Joao Lourenco will host presidents Museveni, Kagame and Democratic Republic of Congo’s Felix Tshisekedi for second time in Luanda on Wedensday.
This Quadripartite summit in Luanda will help attendees to ‘witness the understanding reached between Uganda and Rwanda’.
“Rwanda and Uganda reached an understanding after contacts undertaken by Angola with DR Congo’s assistance, according to a note of the civil office of President Joao Lourenco,” the agency stated.
The submit this week is a follow up of the July 12 meeting convened by Lourenco and attended by Museveni, Kagame, and Tshisekedi in Luanda.
The meeting, which sought to resolve the differences between Kagame and Museveni, also discussed regional security, cooperation and strengthening of ties among the four countries.
Angola President had urged the leaders of Rwanda and Uganda to reach an agreement deal and end hostilities.
The verbal war between the two neigbouring countries picked momentum early this year following Rwanda’s closure of its border with Uganda and also issuing of a travel advisory to its citizens.
Rwanda accused Uganda of illegally arresting, torturing and deporting its citizens, offering support to two foreign-based Rwanda rebel groups and economic sabotage.
Rwandan Foreign Minister Richard Sezibera revealed that they opted to block their nationals from traveling to Uganda because they could not guarantee their safety.
The government in Kampala has since denied the allegations.
