Koyara who is on a three-day state visit to Rwanda also paid homage to victims of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi whose remains are laid to rest at Kigali Genocide Memorial in Gisozi.
She said that in the near future, military experts from both countries will meet to set plans regarding the implementation of the four pacts signed in October this year in Bangui, particularly in the area of defense.
Koyara added that the Central African Republic has always been Rwanda’s ally particularly due to the way the Government of Rwanda was among the first to send peacekeepers to the Central African Republic in 2014 when the country was facing political turmoil.
She acknowledged the Government of Rwanda continuous efforts in upholding a Pan-African spirit and being a problem-solver in the issues the continent continues to face. “The type of support Rwanda shows to the Central African Republic is unmatched and that spirit of philanthropism and solidarity cannot be taken for granted.”
Rwanda and the Central African Republic maintain very good relationships given that this year an army delegation from the CAR received military training in Rwanda.
Rwanda is third among countries with most deployed peacekeepers in United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) with more than 1370 soldiers and 430 police officers currently in peacekeeping missions.
