On April 6th, United Nations (U.N.) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited Kigali, Rwanda, to participate in the official commemoration ceremony of the 1994 genocide that killed 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and politically moderate Hutus. Prior to the ceremony, Secretary-General Ban met with Rwandan President Paul Kagame, where the leaders discussed international efforts to prevent future genocides and other mass atrocities.
On April 6th, President Barack Obama issued a press statement on the 20th commemoration of the genocide in Rwanda. President Obama mourned the loss of more than 800,000 people to genocide and commended Rwandans for their efforts to heal the wounds of the genocide, spur economic growth, and eradicate poverty. President Obama also bemoaned the world’s failure to respond to the genocide in Rwanda and called on the international community to never again be so indifferent to intolerance and suffering.
