King Abdullah II of Jordan on Tuesday promised to advance his country’s partnership with Rwanda as he concluded his three-day visit to the East African country.
King Abdullah II arrived in Rwanda Sunday for a visit aimed at strengthening bilateral relations.
On Sunday, King Abdullah II and President Paul Kagame held bilateral talks in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, before witnessing the signing of several bilateral agreements.
“Grateful to my dear friend President Paul Kagame for the warm hospitality. Inspiring to witness firsthand how the Rwandan people, through resilience and unity turned Rwanda into a beacon of progress and prosperity admired by all,” King Abdullah II said on X, formerly Twitter. “Jordan is keen to advance its partnership with you.”
Kagame noted that Rwanda and Jordan share common values and aspirations for development rooted in peace, justice and security. “I look forward to building on our productive discussions and further strengthening our bilateral ties and the friendship between our two peoples,” Kagame said in a tweet.
The agreements signed Sunday encompass cooperation in health and medical science, as well as the elimination of double taxation on income tax and the prevention of tax evasion and avoidance, according to the president’s office.
The two countries also inked a memorandum of understanding to facilitate economic and trade cooperation as well as agriculture.
