KDRTV DODOMA: Tanzania`s President Samia Suluhu makes her first State visit to Kigali, Rwanda, on Monday.
The president will hold private talks with her Rwanda counterpart Paul Kagame during her two-day visit.
The President`s visit to Rwanda occurs after the recent high-profile meetings between top officials from both countries.
The recent meeting involved Rwanda`s Minister of ICT, Paul Ingabire, and her Tanzanian counterpart, Faustine Ndugulile.
The recent summit critically discussed the review of the submarine cable infrastructure in Tanzania that supports communication services to Rwanda.
KDRTV also established that on July 9, security authorities from both countries met to discuss topics of mutual interests in Dodoma.
It is projected that the two heads of state will majorly discuss the instability in Mozambique, where Rwanda has deployed 1000 soldiers and police officers to fight Islamist insurgents.
Tanzania had signed an MoU with Mozambique in November 2020 to jointly fight the Islamists in Cabo Delgado Province.
The visit is meant for Rwanda to advise Tanzania which is a core member of SADC.
The two heads of state will also discuss the Isaka-Kigali standard gauge railway line.
The project has experienced delay construction due to a lack of funds.
The diplomatic links between Tanzania and Rwanda were strengthened in 2015.
Reports indicate that before then, Rwanda has been accusing Tanzania of supporting rebels.
On the other side, Tanzania had suspended Rwandan settlers in 2013 during the regime of the late President John Pombe Maghufuli.
However, the only notable point of disagreement is in mid-2020 when the two countries seemingly disagreed on the term of border crossings in the heist of coronavirus pandemic.
Within her first four months of Presidency, President Samia Suluhu has visited all members of the East Africa Community except South Sudan.
