“Discussions focused on the ongoing counter terrorism operations in Cabo Delgado province. Maj Gen Christovao Chume commended the achievements of the Rwandan Security Forces in collaboration with Mozambique Forces in fighting terrorism in Cabo Delgado,” stated a communique from Rwanda’s Defence Ministry.
