The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right honourable friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), visited Rwanda, as part of a wider trip to central Africa, from 25-27 March. He visited Kigali on 26 March where he had a successful meeting with President Kagame. They discussed the need for a lasting solution to the conflict in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the terrible damage being caused in the region by the use of sexual violence as a weapon in conflict, and covered a number of bilateral issues.
