Statement from Rwanda on Israeli deportations of African refugees

The demonstrations around the world by Jewish and African activists had an important impact.

They led to the Rwandan government issuing a statement stating categorically that it has “never signed any secret deal with Israel regarding the relocation of African migrants.”

That is an important achievement, although the wording does not exclude accepting asylum seekers who have “voluntarily” decided to leave Israel – following the intolerable pressure the Israeli authorities are placing them under.

Here is the letter given to the London demonstration by the Rwandan High Commission
