President Paul Kagame was received today by President Denis Sassou N’guesso in his hometown of Oyo, north of the capital city of Brazzaville.
President Kagame is scheduled to spend two days in the Republic of Congo during which he will hold private talks with President Sassou N’guesso and tour the town of Oyo.
Bilateral relations between Rwanda and the Republic of Congo have grown in recent years and now include economic and trade partnerships of Rwandan and Congolese businesses facilitated by twice weekly flights by national carrier Rwandair between Kigali and Brazzaville.
President Kagame’s visit to Congo takes place following a visit by President Sassou N’guesso last November to Rwanda during which the two heads of state discussed bilateral and regional issues including the crisis in DRC and need to continue supporting the ongoing regional peace process.
