Rwanda and Uganda make move to settle dispute

In a bid to ease diplomatic tension between
Rwanda and Uganda, both presidents have agreed to release prisoners and commit
to protecting human rights.

Presidents Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Yoweri
Museveni of Uganda have committed to refrain from actions that could be
perceived as “supporting, financing and infiltration of destabilizing forces in
their neighbour’s territory,” according to a statement that followed a meeting
in Luanda, Angola on Sunday.

The summit followed the August 2019 Peace
Pact that was signed by the two leaders and is the third convened by Angolan
President Joao Lourenco in Luanda. It was attended by Congolese President Felix
Tshisekedi, whose country has been the overseer of the implementation of the Luanda
Memorandum of Understanding.

The leaders are scheduled to meet again on
February 21 at the Katuna border, whereas an Ad Hoc team will meet to deliberate
prior to the presidents’ arrival.
