Your Excellency, my friend, President Faustin-Archange Touadéra, it is a pleasure to welcome you and your delegation.

Rwanda has been happy to join hands with the people of the Central African Republic in pursuit of peace, reconciliation, and prosperity.

The signing of these agreements and the joint communiqué will serve to further cement our bilateral ties and deliver on the immense potential for the socio-economic transformation of our nations.

Sustained cooperation across the continent is essential for all of us to succeed.

Rwanda is committed to expanding our strategic partnership with tangible results, in the years ahead.

Mr. President, once again, I thank you for the honour of this visit. Merci beaucoup.

I now invite you, Mr President, to deliver your remarks.
