6 Mar Rwanda- Uganda standoff

Uganda’s foreign ministry has issued the first statement about the country’s relations with Rwanda, since the on-going standoff that escalated last week when the main Katuna border was partially closed. The statement released addressed three main themes, including Rwanda’s accusations that Uganda was harbouring dissidents against the Kigali regime, in addition to harassing its citizens. Meanwhile earlier the Rwandan Foreign Minister Richard Sezibera accused Uganda of offering assistance to two foreign-based Rwanda rebel groups that are opposed to Paul Kagame’s rule.
