This Friday, President Paul Kagame received his Congolese counterpart Félix Tshisekedi at La Corniche One-Stop Border Post. The two heads of State toured the town of Rubavu to assess the damages caused by the recent earthquakes which followed Nyiragongo volcanic eruption.
President Félix Tshisekedi is on a one-day working visit to Rwanda and after touring Rubavu held talks with President Kagame.
The Rwandan head of state is also expected to reciprocate the visit on Saturday, 26 June 2021 where he will be received by President Tshisekedi in DRC’s eastern city of Goma.
The two presidents will visit areas damaged by the volcanic eruption of mount Nyiragongo on the Congolese side of the border before holding bilateral talks. Delegations from both nations will sign bilateral agreements to further strengthen the DRC-Rwanda diplomatic ties.
Official sources say President Kagame’s working visit to DRC will be concluded by a joint press conference.
