President Paul Kagame on Wednesday arrived in Armenia where he will take part in the 17 Summit of La Francophonie, a bloc that brings together over 80 French-speaking countries.
The Summit has as key on agenda the election of the secretary-general of the multinational body, which is slated for Friday.
Among the contenders is Rwanda’s Foreign Affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo, who received unanimous backing from African nations during the last African Union Summit.
The other contender is Michaëlle Jean, a Canadian, who is also the incumbent.
This evening in Yerevan, President Kagame meets with Premier-designate of Québec François Legault following his endorsement of Louise Mushikiwabo, the candidate chosen unanimously by the African Union to be the next OIF Secretary General. #SommetEVN18 #Francophonie2018 pic.twitter.com/k7SvAFxmAK— Presidency | Rwanda (@UrugwiroVillage) October 10, 2018
