In his speech, Kagame welcomed Wonekha and praised the good relations which Uganda and Rwanda have as well as shared historical ties.
He said he had high expectations that the two countries would strive to maintain the good relations and not take them for granted.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Wonekha informed Kagame that she was aware of the good relations the countries share and promised to build on the successes of her predecessor to uphold the bond.
President Kagame pledged to support her to fulfil her mandate where necessary and said that since Uganda and Rwanda have a long historical bond, they should always try to iron out any differences amicably and move on smoothly.
Rwanda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Louise Mushikiwabo and officials from the Uganda High Commission in Kigali attended the ceremony.
