The Rwandan President Paul Kagame began a two day visit to Israel on Monday, a trip intended to boost relations between the two countries. During the visit the head of state held bilateral talks with President Reuven Rivlin as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Co-operation between our countries has blossomed, in many areas among them technology, in agriculture and energy as well as security. We appreciate what Israel has to offer in these and other fields, and we are very happy to be working with you,” President Kagame noted while meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu.
The Head of State added that, trade and investment links have also multiplied. “Rwanda is open for business, and we look forward to welcoming private sector delegations from Israel even more frequently, in the future.”
The visit serves to strengthen bilateral ties between the two nations and follows Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit to Rwanda in July last year.
