New Witness Strains Rwanda-France Ties Over Genocide

Minister of Foreign Affairs Louise Mushikiwabo says the government is "running out of patience" with France due to the back and forth on a file by French judges accusing senior members of the Rwanda Patriotic Front/Army of shooting down the aeroplane - an act which is believed to have sparked the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. The emergence of a "new witness" in the case is said to be a sign France is determined to cover up its role in the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.



President Paul Kagame met his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in New York on September 18, 2017.
