President Yoweri Museveni believes European countries can continue working with Africa without squabbles.
He was reacting to information that France, a major influence in the European Union, is working towards bringing peace to Eastern DR Congo.
These details were provided by the outgoing ambassador of France to Uganda H.E Jules-Armand Aniambossou who paid a courtesy visit to say his goodbyes.
“I met the outgoing ambassador of France to Uganda H.E Jules-Armand Aniambossou, who briefed me on various issues the French government is involved in, including efforts to bring lasting peace to Eastern DRC,” the President said in a brief statement.
“I welcome their efforts. Europe has nothing to lose if they work well with Africa. I wish H.E the Ambassador good luck as he takes on his new assignments,” he added.
The French envoy is leaving his posting in Uganda after three years of diplomatic service.
Prime Minister Robinah Nabbajja, in an earlier meeting with Aniambossou last week, said the two countries – Uganda and France – have attained remarkable milestones.
Despite recent frosty relations between the European Union and Uganda caused by a resolution made by the European Parliament calling for Uganda to stop its oil projects, France and Uganda enjoy a jovial relationship that has greatly benefited Uganda.
