Uganda’s foreign affairs Minister Sam Kutesa says in a statement released Wednesday afternoon that Rwanda is not allowing Ugandan exports.

Rwanda is also not letting through trucks carrying goods from here to cross to Uganda, according to Kutesa’s statement.

At its borders, Rwanda is only allowing through trucks carrying good transiting to Rwanda or for DR Congo, says the Minister, after about a week when President Museveni ordered no more statement on the Rwanda-Uganda issue from Ugandan officials.

“In effect, this is a trade embargo on bilateral trade with Uganda,” says Kutesa.
