The President on the third day, will meet the President of France, address a joint meeting of investors from France and Spain and hold several meetings aimed at steering Uganda’s progress.

Museveni was received at the Orly airport by Uganda’s Ambassador to France and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO Nimisha Madhvani, MPs Oleru Huda of Yumbe district and Yona Musinguzi of Ntungamo Municipality.

According to the Director of Cooperation of Security and Defence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France, Marin Gillier, the theme “Peace and Security in Africa” reflects the main concern of the Elysee summit in view of developments of major security issues in some African countries like Mali and Central African Republic.

“The recent crises in Mali and Central African Republic have demonstrated that the African states want to take in hand the management of crises on their continent,” Gillier notes.

Therefore, whereas France would like to contribute to strengthening African capacity to face threats which according to the European country are cross-cutting and include terrorism, transnational crime, maritime piracy and trafficking of all kinds, Mr. Gillier says France would like the cooperation projects to be designed on a “long-term joint approach” with African partners “within a partnership including mutual commitments.”
