KAMPALA, Uganda (AA) - The foreign minister of Uganda and Rwanda have failed to reach an agreement after overnight talks.
Speaking to reporters after their meeting in Kampala on Friday night, Rwanda's Olivier Nduhungirehe said that there were armed groups who were getting support from the Ugandan government.
“Our people want to be sure that a Rwandan can come to Uganda for trade and visit relatives without the fear of being illegally arrested,” he said.
He added: "There are people on our border who want to be sure that they will live in peace without being threatened by armed groups that are operating in Uganda."
Rwanda's top diplomat said he had also raised the issues of their citizens who "are arbitrarily arrested and illegally detained and also tortured" in Uganda.
Uganda’s Sam Kutesa said they had discussed attempts to infiltrate the country's security agencies and the closure of border with Rwanda.
“We shall never support any force that intends to destabilize our neighbors including Rwanda,” he said.
The two sides are meeting for the second time after a peace commission was set up earlier this year in Luanda, Angola.
