The visiting Ugandan foreign affairs minister, Sam Kutesa and Louise Mushikiwabo of Rwanda are meeting  in a two days joint permanent commission (JOP) in Kigali to discuss on areas of cooperation .

These include Defense and Security, Cross border Trade, Infrastructure and Energy, Education and Research, Communication and Information Technology (ICT), Agriculture and Food Security and Governance and International Cooperation.

“The government of Uganda fully supports the cooperation of the two countries. We don’t need these physical boarders, we need to avoid double taxation, we need to open the boarders 24/7, therefore these areas of cooperation are necessary,” Kutesa said

According to Kutesa, Uganda doesn’t celebrate seeing memorandum signed only but implemented.

“We need to see oil pipelines coming to Rwanda, power and infrastructure, boosting trade and developing small and medium business,” Kutesa added

Rwanda’s Mushikiwabo called on speed action on issues which were discussed last year.

“Rwanda recognizes the importance of this commission regarding the areas of defence and security, agriculture &food security…we need to do what we do in time,” Mushikiwabo said.

This year’s JPC will focus on the seven priority areas of cooperation set out during the last 8th session of Joint Permanent Commission which was held in Kampala during March 2010.
