Uganda and Rwanda commit to end tensions

LUANDA (Angola), Presidents Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Paul Kagame of Rwanda have signed a peace deal to end their diplomatic feud.

The agreement was reached on Wednesday in the Angolan capital, Luanda.

The two signed it in the presence of the leaders of Angola, Congo-Brazzaville and the Democratic Republic of Congo � who have all played a mediation role.

The relationship between the two neighbours has been fraught over the last three years � both trading accusations of interference in each other's affairs:

We are going to address all these problems, Kagame told journalists after signing the document.

The tension has affected trade along their common border as Rwandans have not been allowed to cross to Uganda.

The agreement says that they will resume as soon as possible the cross-border activities between both countries.
