During the sessions of the 5th Global Security Forum, which began today under the theme “Reshaping the Global Order: Conflict, Crises, and Cooperation” at the Sheraton Doha Hotel, they stressed the importance of regional and global cooperation, diversification of the economy and participation in shaping the features of the new world order.
Growing global challenges of wars, conflicts, climate change issues and economic pressures all require everyone to think about a solution, HE President of the Republic of Rwanda Paul Kagame said. We, as parties, states and leaders, must play our role and contribute to solutions before we reach undesired stages, and the major powers should look at it from this perspective, he said.

The President of the Republic of Rwanda indicated that the US-African summit, held last December, achieved tangible results and will have more clear results in the future, pointing to his confidence in the efforts of the African Union and leaders in the region in addressing the challenges of the African continent in cooperation with and assistance from the world.
His Excellency highlighted the development in his country and the development of its capabilities in the field of health and development, raising economic growth rates and strengthening governance as well as fairness and equality for women.
