Uganda’s president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has sent a special message to his Rwandan counterpert Paul Kagame in the capital Kigali.
Uganda’s foreign affairs minister Sam Kutesa deliver Museveni’s message to Kagame Thursday morning.
Although the details of Museveni’s letter to Kagame were not readily available, sources said Museveni had written to Kagame regarding the recent ‘frosty’ relations between Kampala and Kigali.
Both Museveni and Kagame have recently denied there was no love lost between them and the countries they led.
Kutesa also met incoming Rwandan foreign affairs minister Dr Richard Sezibera.
Sezibera, the former secretary general for the East African Community (EAC), replaced Louise Mushikiwabo.
Mushikiwabo is taking on a lead role as the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) Secretary General.
Kutesa and Sezibera “discussed issues of bilateral interest and pledged to work closely to broaden and deepen cooperation between Uganda and Rwanda”, said Uganda Media Centre.
