Amb. Marcel Tibaleka on 6th April 2018 received Ms. Mareike Worrle, the new Desk Officer for Uganda at the German Federal Foreign Office, who had paid a courtesy visit to the Uganda Embassy in Berlin. Ms. Worrle was accompanied by her predecessor, Ms Rebecca Dovergne, who now moves on to a new assignment as Desk Officer for Tanzania and Kenya. Ms Worrle, who has been the Policy Officer for South Sudan, is now in charge of Uganda, Seychelles, Mauritius and Comoros.

Amb. Tibaleka and his guests had an in-depth exchange of views on bilateral, regional and international issues and pledged to promote and strengthen the friendly relations between the governments and peoples of the Republic of Uganda and Germany. Diplomatic relations between Uganda and Germany were established in November 1964. Uganda has maintained a diplomatic mission in Germany since 1964, initially in Bonn, West Germany and subsequently in Berlin after Germany's unification. The two countries have a tradition of close partnership and bilateral relations between them have been good and have kept on improving.

The Ambassador lauded Germany's recent participation in the Summit of Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) which was held on 2nd March 2018 in Kampala under the Chairmanship of H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda. Amb. Tibaleka pointed out that the TCCs had met with Representatives of Regional and International Partners, including Germany, and thanked them for their stabilization efforts towards Somalia. During the Summit, the Partners were requested to support the enhancement of the capacity and training of the Somali National Security Forces to maintain peace and security in Somalia; to enhance their support to the Federal Government of Somalia to stabilize the political situation in the country; and to strengthen administration structures and systems in areas seized from Al Shabaab.
