Abstract
Calm continues in Kigali neighborhoods, though tensions remain high. RPF rejection of the outcome of the president's meeting with the parties may dash hopes for an early end to the political impasse. U.S. and other interlocutors are urging the RPF to continue dialogue. President Habyarimana sent an emissary to the UN to convince the SYG he is not the cause of the political impasse. Meanwhile, UNAMIR reports both sides are strengthening defensive positions at the front and in Kigali. The embassy continues to monitor the situation closely and communicate with AmCits.
