Congo President Joseph Kabila has just crossed the border into Rwanda where he will be meeting with President Paul Kagame during his one day working visit.
Kabila crossed the border via La Corniche border and entered Gisenyi district on Friday.
According to Rwanda Presidency, Kagame received Kabila at Rubavu ahead of their meeting at Serena Kivu Hotel.
“President Kagame will receive President Kabila for a working visit focused on regional cooperation,” the presidency said in a tweet.
This comes after Kabila met Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni in Kasese district over ADF and M23 rebels.
In Rwanda, Kabila and Kagame are expected to tackle the question of FDLR rebels camped in Kisangani, North and South Kivu since 2014.
Observers are not convinced that Kabila’s sudden visits to regional leaders are limited to security and economic cooperation.
The visits come at a time the Congolese president is expected to leave power at the close of his third term.
US has already clarified on its position, insisting that Kabila steps down at the end of his term.
Protests have been rocking the capital Kinshasa as the population rejects the president’s move to grab a third term in office.
Both Kagame and Museveni have already secured themselves more than two terms in office and intend to stay in power.
