Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi is in Rwanda, and was welcomed by his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame on Tuesday at 11.50 am on a visit intended to strengthen bilateral ties between the two nations.
After inspecting a guard of honour he visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial where he laid a wreath to pay tribute to the victims of Rwandan Genocide who were killed in 1994.
Al Sisi said that the life of any person is holy and should be defended.
"It is necessary that all people have peace, unity, collaboration and freedom and henceforth we uphold a culture of peace in all contexts of people living on the world. We have hope that criminal deeds like this that are shameful will never occur again," he said.
Abdel Fattah Al Sissi began his four African nations tour on Monday in Tanzania; from Rwanda he will later visit two states Chad and Gabon according to EgyptianAmbassador to Rwanda Namira Negma.
Both Presidents are expected to issue ajoint statement after holding bilateral talks. Rwanda and Egypt have strong relations, particularly in sectors of trade, health and defence.
