Il United Kingdom and Rwanda are still committed to reaching an agreement on the deportation of migrants, although support for this plan has declined due to continued delays caused by court rulings. The newspaper reports it "The Guardian". London has already paid the Rwandan government more than £140 million (162 million euros), but no asylum seekers have yet been sent to the African country due to legal appeals. Last November 15, the agreement was declared illegal by the Supreme Court, according to which Rwanda is not a safe country.
Government sources they told The Guardian newspaper that Rwandan officials are happy to proceed with negotiations, but are concerned that Paul Kagame's government has been "vilified" by the Supreme Court ruling. Yolande Makolo, spokesperson for the Rwandan government, said: “Rwanda is a safe and welcoming country for asylum seekers and migrants, and criticism of our country is unjustified.
“Negotiating a treaty involves finding mutually beneficial areas and working within agreed, anticipated and understood parameters,” another government source told the newspaper, adding: “While there has been speculation on various points that suggest problems, the truth is that discussions with a partner country willing to work with us continue. Both sides are interested in doing things right and doing them as soon as possible for the good of both sides."
