Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame signed several bilateral with the government of Jordan over the weekend.
The deals were penned during the King of Jordan Abdullah II Ibn Al-Hussein’s three-day visit to the African state as both countries sought to deepen diplomatic ties.
King Al-Hussein arrived in Rwanda’s capital Kigali on Sunday for an official working visit.
The agreements address economic, trade, agricultural, and health and medical scientific cooperation.
According to a statement from Jordan’s palace, the two nations have also inked a tax deal designed to do away with double taxation and stop tax evasion and avoidance.
The announcement also stated that the two nations will strengthen their diplomatic, defence, and counterterrorism cooperation.
The discussion between both leaders also included the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.
“The king thanked Rwanda for its contribution to the humanitarian response in Gaza by sending a plane carrying humanitarian aid”, Jordan’s palace stated.
With the announcement of an earlier set of arrangements in February last year and a reciprocal visa-waiver agreement in August, the two nations have been getting closer to one another in recent years.
