Kagame, Modi hold discussion over Covid-19

President Paul Kagame revealed Friday that he held what he described as a “historically good” discussions with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Kagame tweeted his gratitude to the Indian Prime Minister on behalf of Rwandans. “We discussed our historically good relationship and the support India continues to offer us,” he said. The President said he thanked Modi for the medical supplies and equipment India donated to Rwanda in this fight against Covid-19. “It is very much appreciated.” Officials declined revealing how many medical supplies and equipment India donated to Rwanda. Unlike India, other countries like China, Qatar, and Germany have disclosed their support towards Rwanda’s fight against the new Coronavirus pandemic. However, the Indian Association Rwanda (INAR) on April 8 donated medical supplies worth two million Rwandan francs to the local authorities to help in testing and treating Covid-19 patients. Modi made a two-day state visit in Rwanda in July 2018, becoming the first Indian head of government to set foot in Rwanda and during the visit, he announced the setting up of an Indian high commission in Kigali, which has since been established.
