“This afternoon at Urugwiro Village, President Kagame received Hon. António Tete, Minister of External Relations of Angola who is in Rwanda with a message from President João Lourenço of Angola, who is currently serving as Chairperson of ICGLR,” reads a message posted by Rwanda’s Presidency on Twitter.
António Tete arrived in Rwanda coming from Rwanda Kinshasa, the capital of DRC where he was received by President Félix Tshisekedi on Sunday as a special envoy of Lourenço.
He began visits to the two neighbouring countries following escalated tensions amidst reciprocal accusations related to the fight between Congolese Army (FARDC) and M23 rebel group.
On Sunday, DRC resolved to expel Rwanda’s Ambassador, Vincent Karega.
The decision was reached through a High Defence Council chaired by President Felix Tshisekedi.
It was taken at a time when Congolese Army (FARDC) continues to loose bases to M23 rebel group and attributes its strength to alleged support from Rwanda.
Rwanda has however denied the allegations repeatedly calling the fight with M23 an internal problem which should be addressed by DRC.
