Congratulatory Message sent by Mr. Emmanuel MACRON, President of the French Republic, to H.E. Paul KAGAME, President of the Republic of Rwanda, on the occasion of the 26th celebration of Liberation Day

 

To H.E President Paul Kagame,

On the occasion of the National Day of the Republic of Rwanda, I am pleased to extend to you and to the people of Rwanda my warmest congratulations and best wishes.

The celebration of your national holiday takes place this year in a particular context of global health crisis, which has experienced international solidarity, at a time when it was more than ever necessary. I hope that the call that we co-signed on April 15 will allow for real awareness of the need for better international cooperation in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I would like to assure you of France’s support during this difficult period, both bilaterally and multilaterally, to support the Rwandan national response strategy to the pandemic.

Over the past two years, our political dialogue has grown considerably and I welcome this. The new dynamism that we have instilled in it is in the process of finding concrete translations, in the image of the revival of our development cooperation or even work to enable the next opening of a French-speaking cultural center in Kigali.

I attach particular importance to the continuation and deepening of this dialogue.

At the same time, be assured that we are continuing our efforts to ensure that all suspected Rwandan genocidaires are prosecuted. Following the decision to strengthen the means of the French justice dealing with the procedures relating to the genocide against the Tutsi, the arrest, last May, of Félicien Kabuga consecrated a new stage in this fight which we carry out at your sides against impunity. I also hope that it has brought comfort to the victims and survivors of the Genocide against Tutsi as well as to their descendants.

Renewing all my wishes, please accept, Mr. President, the expression of my highest consideration.

Emmanuel MACRON
