Rwanda is home to five million poor people. Our commitment to help lift the people of Rwanda out of poverty is strong. As recently announced, the UK Government will provide direct support for 135,200 of Rwanda's poorest people each year, help register the land of 6.4 million men and women to give their families and businesses greater stability and distribute a million bed-nets and help 29,000 children to complete basic education.
The UK-Rwanda relationship is a candid one and we raise issues where we have concerns on a regular basis and at senior levels. We take every opportunity to raise with the Rwandan Government our concerns over political space, media freedom and extra-judicial killings.
The UK Government have made clear that it is unacceptable to threaten persons in the UK or elsewhere.
