The ceremony took place on Wednesday, August 16th, 2023.
During the event, Minister Biruta extended his sincere congratulations to Ms. Einat Weiss on her appointment as the ambassador of Israel to Rwanda. He took the opportunity to underscore the longstanding and fruitful bilateral cooperation between the two nations and expressed his optimism for further strengthening these ties.
Turning his attention to Mr. Naeem Ullah Khan, Minister Biruta conveyed his best wishes on behalf of Rwanda and reaffirmed the nation’s commitment to collaborate closely with Pakistan.
The historical connection between Rwanda and Israel traces back to 1962 when Rwanda gained its independence. Notably, in 2014, Rwanda set a precedent as the first African country to enter into cooperation agreements with Israel. Subsequently, in 2015, the Rwandan embassy was established in Tel Aviv, signifying the deepening diplomatic relationship between the two nations.
Rwanda’s diplomatic ties with Pakistan also have a rich history, dating back to July 1962. The countries have consistently collaborated across various domains, including trade and investment, cementing their enduring friendship.
As Rwanda continues to engage with the global community, these diplomatic interactions serve as pivotal moments to reinforce international partnerships and promote cooperative efforts for mutual progress.
