Kigali and Kampala in military intel-sharing deal

APA- Kigali (Rwanda)

Rwanda and Uganda have signed a memorandum of understanding on military intelligence sharing, a few days after the two countries decide agreed to resolve a furious diplomatic row, an authoritative source revealed Tuesday.

The move comes after Rwandan President Paul Kagame visited  Uganda last month for the first time since the dispute that led to  closure of the Uganda-Rwanda border.

During the visit, the Rwandan leader also  held a meeting with his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni on regional peace and cooperation.

Reports said that after four days of fruitful deliberations the two countries have reached good resolutions on how to work together.

The text, signed early Monday  by the head of Rwanda military intelligence Brig Gen Vincent Nyakarundi and the number two of Ugandan military intelligence provides that the two agencies exchange information on various security concerns.

Rwanda first closed the busy border crossing at Gatuna in February 2019. Subsequent talks mediated by Angola and DR Congo appeared to fail to resolve the dispute, compelling Uganda to negotiate privately with Rwanda.
