President Paul Kagame has arrived in Luanda, Angola for a two-day working visit during which he will meet with his counterpart President João Lourenço.

Both Heads of State held a meeting before attending a luncheon hosted in honor of President Kagame.

This visit is expected to be an opportunity to strengthen bilateral ties in different areas including air transport, security, justice, free movement between both countries’ people, ICT and governance.

Both heads of states are expected to hold a press conference on the second day of the visit.

In February this year, both countries signed cooperation agreements fostering security and public order in the interest of their citizen.

The two governments last year signed a Bilateral Air Service Agreement under which the national carrier, RwandAir, and Angola’s national airline TAAg got seven frequencies a week on either side.

In June last year, Angola unveiled willingness to remove visa for Rwandan citizens traveling to Angola as a result of existing good relations.

Angola is a central-African country with the total area of 1,246,700 km2 and over 25 million people. It is among African countries rich in minerals.
