Rwanda, Uganda Agree to Bury the Hatchet
The Quadripartite Summit, which at the invitation of Angolan President João Lourenço, focused on security matters in the Great Lakes Region and was attended by Rwandan President Paul Kagame, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and DR Congo's Felix Tshisekedi. The four leaders agreed to "prioritise the resolution of any dispute between their respective countries by peaceful means". Rwanda and Uganda have been feuding since 2017, leading to a breakdown in relations earlier this year that affected the flow of goods and the movement of people across their common border.
