During the visit, the two heads of state engaged in a wide range of conversations including how to foster trade deals and transport between the two nations.
Uhuru in his message to Kagame asked Rwanda’s Commander-in-chief of the armed forces to diversify its imports from Kenya and continue taking advantage of the improved services at the Port of Mombasa to facilitate the movement of goods.
He also praised Kagame for reopening of the Gatuna border with Uganda, saying it will ease the movement of goods and people between the two neighbouring countries.
Uhuru assured Kagame of Kenya’s commitment towards ensuring the two countries mutual benefit from the collaborations in championing the ideals of the East African Community for the benefit of the people of the region.
The same sentiments were supported by Kagame setting a new path of the partnership between Kenya and Rwanda.
The meeting further highlighted the importance of ending the current ongoing conflict in some East African countries including Ethiopia and Sudan.
“The two leaders also affirmed their commitment to working together to find lasting solutions to conflicts facing Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia, saying Kenya and Rwanda will continue to play a leading role in promoting dialogue and peace amongst the warring parties,” State House reported.
Kagame is in the country for official presidential duties on top of his meetings with other Kenyan top officials.
