Entebbe. President Yoweri Museveni last evening hosted the newly elected president of the Democratic Republic of Congo at State House Entebbe where the two leaders discussed a range of bilateral issues including security.
In a statement, Mr Museveni said the two leaders discussed various matters of mutual interest.
“Last evening, I hosted His Excellency Felix Tshisekedi at State House Entebbe. We discussed trade, regional security and other areas of bilateral interest to Uganda and DR Congo,” said Mr Museveni on his official social media channels.
No further details were provided.
Mr Tshisekedi and his predecessor Joseph Kabila earlier this month said they had decided to form a coalition government following talks.
Despite Tshisekedi's election—the first peaceful transition of power since the Democratic Republic of Congo gained independence from Belgium in 1960—the 55-year-old has found himself effectively having to share power since the presidential poll.
He has not been able to push through his choice for prime minister as Kabila's Common Front for Congo (FCC) wields a huge majority in the National Assembly, for which elections were also held on December 30.
