Kigali, February 9, 2024- As a crucial step towards bolstering bilateral defence cooperation, India and Rwanda convened the inaugural Joint Defence Cooperation Committee (JDCC) meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, on February 8, 2024. The high-level meeting served as a platform for both nations to explore avenues for deepening collaboration across various defence domains.

The discussions, marked by a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation, encompassed a wide array of areas including training cooperation, joint military exercises, and defence industrial collaboration. The Indian delegation, led by Joint Secretary Shri Amitabh Prasad, showcased India's burgeoning defence manufacturing capabilities, underlining the potential for exporting high-quality defence equipment to friendly nations.

Rwanda, in turn, expressed a keen interest in expanding training cooperation with India, citing confidence in the robust capabilities of the Indian defence industry. The Rwandan side also identified specific areas where collaboration between the Indian Armed Forces and Rwandan Defence Forces could be further enhanced, in line with the Defence Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) inked during Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's visit to Rwanda in 2018.

Prior to the JDCC meeting, the Indian delegation paid a courtesy call on Rwanda's Defence Minister, Mr. Marizamunda Juvenal, conveying warm greetings from India's Defence Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh. The delegation comprised senior officials from the Ministry of Defence and the Indian Armed Forces, reaffirming India's commitment to deepening defence ties with Rwanda.

The Charge d’Affaires of the Indian mission in Kigali, Shri Nilratan Mridha, also participated in the meeting, underscoring the importance attached to strengthening bilateral relations between the two nations.

India-Rwanda relations have flourished over the years, marked by warmth and mutual respect. The successful convening of the JDCC meeting is expected to further fortify defence cooperation between the two countries, paving the way for closer strategic partnership and collaborative endeavours in the realm of defence and security.
