Germany unblocks $26m suspended Aid to Rwanda
Berlin Government has announced its decision to release the Aid to Rwanda following its suspension over UN accusations that Rwanda was backing M23, a rebel group in DRC; Germany will be releasing €21Million (US$26m)
Germany Minister for International Cooperation announced the decision following an official visit of Rwanda’s Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo to Bundestag Berlin, on behalf of the government of Rwanda.
Berlin government is convinced that Rwanda is working on finding permanent solution for the Eastern Congo and that any reports or allegations claiming Rwanda to cause insecurity in the DRC could be baseless and false.
According to the information from Rwanda Envoy to Germany, Ambassador Nkurikiyinka on 31 January 2013, the release of the suspension of Germany aid to Rwanda Proves once again that allegations against Rwanda are groundless.
Reports say, almost all parties across the German political scale agree to the releasing of suspended aid to Rwanda
Planned German aid to Rwanda had suspended in response to a UN report accusing the central African country of supporting rebels in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo.
