RWANDA PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN REGIONAL STABILITY - GERMAN ENVOY



By: JEAN MUGABO

PUBLISHED: May 18, 2015

Following the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, Rwanda committed to doing everything within its capacity to ensure that such atrocities do not take place again. This philosophy informed its peacekeeping missions which have not only helped restore peace and security in Africa, but also strengthened the country’s relations with the World super powers.

In an exclusive interview with The New Times Jean Mugabo, the German Ambassador to RwandaPeter Fahrenholtz, speaks about security and development in the region as well as an array of issues of bilateral interest.

How is the Rwanda-German relationship like?

The relationship between Rwanda and German is very good. We have very good political dialogue. Ministers, politicians, diplomats and members of parliament of Rwanda and German talk to each other about the situation in Rwanda, situation in the region, Africa and United Nations issues. So, we discuss and consult on many issues.

We believe that Rwanda is giving a good contribution to bring peace and security in Africa. Rwanda is contributing to peacekeeping missions and is one of the largest contributors to peacekeeping missions in Africa.

Rwanda also plays an important role for the stability of the Great Lakes region. We want to work together with Rwanda to help Africa achieve more peace, security and stability.

We also want to learn from Rwanda about Rwandan experiences on peace and security promotion in Africa.

How about development cooperation?
