RWANDA: KIGALI REGIME’S DANGEROUS, DESPARATE, AND UN-DIPLOMATIC ATTACKS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES AT THE UNITED NATIONS

In her remarks at a UN Security Council Open Debate on Prevention and Resolution of Conflicts in the Great Lakes Region, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Samantha Power had this to say about Rwanda:

“Unfortunately, despite Rwanda’s progress on economic rights, on women’s rights – on so many development axes – its record on protecting and promoting civil and political rights is less impressive. The United States remains deeply committed to our partnership with Rwanda, but the continued absence of political space – the inability of individuals and journalists to discuss political affairs or report on issues of public concern – poses a serious risk to Rwanda’s future stability. Rwanda can achieve lasting peace and prosperity through a government centered on the principle of democratic accountability, not centered on any one single individual.”http://usun.state.gov/remarks/7197
