Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame today arrived in the Central Africa Republic for a one-day official visit.
This is the first visit President Kagame makes to the mineral and oil-rich African nation since President Faustin-Archange Touadéra assumed office on March 2016.
The two leaders, according to President Kagame’s office, will hold a tête a tête at the Presidential Palace and witness the signing of bilateral agreements on defence, mining and oil, and investment promotion, along with a Bilateral Investment Treaty.
The two countries will also establish a Joint Permanent Commission.
President Kagame will also attend a State Luncheon hosted in his honour by his host President Touadéra where he will be presented with CAR’s highest decoration “Grand Croix de la Reconnaissance” and a symbolic key to the City of Bangui as the city’s honorary resident.
Rwanda is the top contributor of peacekeeping forces in CAR with 1,370 troops and 430 police.
