This Thursday 09 May 2019, the President of the Senate, Rt Hon Makuza Bernard received in his office the Ambassador of the United States of America to Rwanda, H. E. Peter Vrooman and held exchanges on parliamentary relations and on continuing strengthening cooperation and support between countries, regional security, among other issues.
During their meeting, Rt Hon Makuza Bernard and H.E. Peter Vrooman were glad of existing bilateral relations, similarities among both parliaments, solidarity and respect between both countries, USA and Rwanda.
Ambassador of USA to Rwanda, H.E. Peter Vrooman has explicitly pointed out despite various projects that USA support, but also what USA has to learn from Rwanda. “What Rwanda is going through in terms of reconciliation in the 25 years since the Genocide against the Tutsi is incredibly important in building the new identity of Rwandans. That is something that I think the world in general can learn from. So we are very attentive, and I have learned a lot in my first year here in Rwanda about that,” said Vrooman.
On the side of the President of the Senate, Rt Hon Makuza Bernard appreciated the discussions focusing on the respect to one another as countries that have responsibility to work for their people in matter of security.
USA has been committed to support all along many years Rwandan forces that are on peacekeeping missions in different parts of the world including places like Sudan, South Sudan, and Central Africa.
