As the crisis between Kigali and Kampala persists, Rwandan president Paul Kagame has revealed that communication between him and his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni has significantly reduced.
Rwanda and Uganda have had cold relations for years.
The peak of the crisis was in February 2019 when Kigali closed its Katuna/Gatuna border point with Uganda.
The two neighboring countries trade accusations and counteraccusations touching on espionage, security and stability.
Talks between Kagame and Museveni are yet to bring a lasting solution to the crisis since the implementation of the agreements between Rwanda and Uganda seems to be rather slower than the need to restore relations.
Now, Kagame has revealed that he and Museveni are not talking as much as they previously did.
“We used to talk to one another, but of late, it [the talking] has more or less stopped,” Kagame told Aljazeera at the weekend.
“And until these issues are resolved, then talking is not just talking for the sake of it.”
