KAMPALA - President Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart, Paul Kagame, will on Wednesday hold the second round of talks in Angola to among other things find the last solution to mild existing differences between the Uganda and Rwanda.

Sources say the meeting which will be chaired by the President of Angola, Joao Lourenco, will also be attended by President Felix Tshisekedi of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

 
During the meeting, Museveni and Kagame, are also expected to sign a memorandum of understanding regarding the agreed position, especially the trade relations between the two East African countries.

Since February this year, Rwanda and Uganda have had trade tensions, which culminated in Rwanda closing it's border point at Gatuna.

 
The closure of the border has disrupted trade between the two countries. On Average, Uganda derives $200m (about sh744b) annually from trade inflows with Rwanda.

To ease the tension, Museveni and Kagame held the first high-level political dialogue in Luanda, Angola on July 12, which tackled regional security, cooperation and strengthening of ties.

During the July 12 summit, Lourenco, Tshisekedi, Museveni and Kagame, welcomed the "political will of Rwanda and Uganda to continue dialogue with a view of finding a solution to existing problems."

At today's meeting, experts say, Museveni and Kagame will emerge with a lasting solution to the problem.
