Xi congratulates Kagame on re-election as Rwandan president

President Xi Jinping of China on Tuesday congratulated his Rwandan counterpart, Paul Kagame, on his re-election.

β€œI attach great importance to China-Rwanda relations, and am willing to make efforts with you to promote China-Rwanda friendly cooperation toward achievement of more successes in the interest of the two countries.

β€œTo keep elevating the level of China-Rwanda relations,’’ Xi said in the message.

Kagame was re-elected overwhelmingly on Saturday in the presidential elections.

Presidential elections held in Rwanda on Aug. 4, and the incumbent President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, was re-elected with 99 per cent of the vote.

A referendum in 2015 approved constitutional amendments that allow Kagame to run for a third term in office in 2017, as well as shortening presidential terms from seven to five years.
