Greece is represented in Rwanda through the parallel accreditation of its Embassy in Nairobi.

Political Relations

Greece supports Rwanda’s efforts at national reconciliation and reconstruction following the 1994 genocide and is participating in the mobilisation of the international community towards peace, security, stability and the respect of human rights in the region. In this respect, Greece supports the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), and held the vice-presidency of the UN Security Council Rwanda Sanctions Committee, which monitors the arms embargo. With regard to the involvement of Rwanda in the conflict in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Greece supports the peaceful resolution of the dispute, both within the UN framework and regionally, as well as in compliance with related peace agreements.
The political crisis between 1994 and 1996, the genocide and long-standing domestic insecurity have led to the departure from Rwanda of the small but dynamic Greek community (about 15 people).
In 2008, Greece granted Rwanda a military scholarship for the Hellenic Army Academy (Evelpidon).
Competent Authority: Greek Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya.
