Government officials from Rwanda and Uganda on Friday started a meeting here in efforts to normalize relations between the two neighboring countries.

Ofwono Opondo, Uganda government spokesperson, said in a tweet that delegations from Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo are attending the meeting as facilitators of the Luanda Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame signed the MOU in August in Luanda, Angola to cease hostilities between the two countries.

The government officials last met in Kigali, Rwanda in September with both sides recommitting to the MOU.

Another meeting that was supposed to be held last month in Kampala was postponed at the request of Rwanda.

Uganda and Rwanda have since late February had a hitch in their relations with Rwanda accusing Uganda of harboring its dissidents and also incarcerating its citizens who visit the country. Rwanda urged its citizens not to cross the border into Uganda. Uganda has denied all the accusations made by Rwanda. Enditem
