Ugandan, Rwandan Presidents Hold Fruitful Talks in LondonUgandan President Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame have held "good, fruitful and frank" talks in London, England, media in Kampala reported on Wednesday.
Uganda and Rwanda agreed to set up an extradition treaty to deal with criminals in either country, said a communique issued after the talks on Tuesday night.
"The state-to-state relations would be maintained and improved in accordance with the U.N. and African Union Charter, in particular, there would be no toleration of dissidents from either country using the other country to destabilize relations," the document said.
The talks were hosted by the British government to defuse tension between the two countries.
British Premier Tony Blair welcomed the two leaders and attended the meeting for about 30 minutes when the intimate talks opened at 2:00 p.m. (London time) at 10 Downing Street.
The first stage of talks, chaired by British Secretary of Overseas Development Clare Short, continued at Lancaster House on the same day.
The two former allies crossed swords when Museveni wrote to Clare Short, asking her government to back Uganda's proposal to increase its defense budget in anticipation of aggression from Rwanda.
Uganda accused Rwanda of harboring and backing renegade army officers who declared war on the Kampala government. But Rwanda echoed the same fears accusing Uganda of backing renegade Rwanda People's Army officers.
