The handover of this equipment took place May 15, 2013 at Kanombe Military barracks between US Ambassador to Rwanda, His Excellency Ambassador Donald Koran and the RDF Chief of Defence Staff, Lt Gen Charles Kayonga.
This was the first batch of major equipment to RDF under the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) with the second batch expected soon.
Ambassador Donald Koran stated that “United States remains committed to helping Rwanda Defence Force maintain the highest degree of professionalism and readiness that it is reknowned for.
Adding that”We are committed to continuing our support to the RDF as you continue your professional transformation and continue to execute combined global peacekeeping operations”.
The RDF Chief of Defence Staff, Lt Gen Charles Kayonga was grateful for the US continuous support to Rwanda that translates good relationship between the two countries. “On behalf of the Government of Rwanda, we thank the US Government for the support.
He said the ongoing peacekeeping missions by RDF will need more than the efforts of Rwanda. We will need the helping hand of International community and more particularly the US Government.
RDF continues to enjoy good military cooperation with the US Government especially in the field of peace support missions across the world.
