“Had a very good call with my friend PM @narendramodi, we discussed our historically good relationship and the support India continues to offer us,” President Kagame posted on Twitter
The President said he thanked Modi for the medical supplies and equipment India donated to Rwanda in this fight against Covid-19.
The India Premier responded with a tweet thanking President Kagame for the leadership shown in the fight against the pandemic.
“India is honoured to support your efforts, not only for fighting the pandemic but also for advancing Rwanda’s impressive development story,” PM Modi said
“Rwanda is, and will remain, an important pillar of India’s relationship with Africa.” He added
Like India, China, Qatar and Germany have also voiced their support to Rwanda’s fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Indian Association Rwanda (INAR) on April 8 donated medical supplies worth two million Rwandan francs to the local authorities to help with testing and treating Covid-19 patients.
Modi made a two-day state visit in Rwanda in July 2018, becoming the first Indian head of government to set foot in Rwanda and during the visit, he announced the setting up of an Indian high commission in Kigali, which has since been established.
