Rwanda and France restore diplomatic relations

Breaking News

Rwanda and France have restored diplomatic relations three years after they were broken in a row over responsibility for the 1994 genocide.

Both governments said they had agreed to appoint ambassadors at the end of long negotiations.

The two nations fell out after a French judge said President Paul Kagame helped spark the genocide, and Rwanda accused France of arming the Hutu militias.

On Sunday Rwanda was also admitted to the Commonwealth.
