Boris Johnson will not disclose discussion with Prince Charles in Rwanda
Good to meet President Paul Kagame in the beautiful city of Kigali this morning. As we hand over the Commonwealth Chair-in-Office to Rwanda, our countries will be working together closely to address the most pressing global challenges - Boris Johnson official Facebook account

The Anews reported, citing Reuters, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday (June 24) he would not disclose any conversation he has with heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles at a meeting in Rwanda.

British newspapers have reported that Charles had privately criticised Britain's plan to send tens of thousands of migrants who arrive on its shores illegally to the East African country.

He told reporters: "I wouldn't comment on anything that I say to the queen or the queen says to me, nor would I say what the heir to the throne might say to me or what I may say to him. Prime ministers never talk about that."

"But what I will say is as people come to Rwanda like you have today there are a lot of prejudices about Rwanda (that) need to be blown away."

 

My visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial. An unspeakable tragedy that must never be forgotten.

On Thursday (June 23), Johnson said on Twitter: "I've arrived in Rwanda for CHOGM to address global challenges, from hunger to climate change, and to turbocharge trade with some of the world's most dynamic economies."
