President Kagame has arrived at Gatuna border where he is expected to attend the fourth quadripartite summit along President Museveni of Uganda, President Lourenço of Angola and President Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

President Kagame arrived at Gatuna at around noon and waited across the border for other Rwandan officials who are also attending the summit.

The meeting happens after Rwanda advised its citizens to stop all travels to Uganda for security purposes after many Rwandans were dumped at borders after being incarcerated and tortured in Uganda. There also is a pending request from Rwanda urging Uganda to stop all support to terrorist groups operating on its territory including RNC, FDLR and RUD Urunana.

At multiple occasion, Rwanda has accused Uganda of impeding trade activities between the two countries after reports that Uganda withheld goods from Rwandans who conduct business in that country.

The summit follows an announcement from the government of Uganda stating it has revoked the passport of Mukankusi Charlotte, RNC Commissioner for Diplomacy.

Uganda has also released 13 Rwandans who were incarcerated in Uganda and deported two others who admitted playing a role in Kinigi attack which happened last year in Musanze district and claimed 14 lives.

The third resolution of the Ad Hoc Commission between Rwanda and Uganda held in Kigali on February 14th, 2020 states "both parties committed to finalize the Extradition Treaty to be signed in the presence of the Heads of States at the fourth quadripartite summit to be held at Gatuna/Katuna common border between Rwanda and Uganda on February 21st, 2020"

In the event both parties respect their part of the Luanda Memorandum of Understanding and resolutions from the Ad Hoc commission, it is highly likely, the currently tense atmosphere will go back to normal.
