The Minister of Defence and Veteran Affairs Hon Adolf Mwesige has met with the Ambassador of Israel in Uganda His Excellency Obed Joseph.

The meeting, at the Defence Ministry headquarters in Mbuya, was aimed at deepening the existing defence cooperation between Israel and Uganda.

Hon Mwesige applauded the Government of Israel for the existing good relations with Uganda in other areas like agriculture and international relations, noting that defence cooperation deepens the continuity of the much needed prosperity.  “Focusing mainly on defence cooperation, not in words, but in practice between the two countries increases performance in many socio-economic sectors,” said Hon Mwesige.

Ambassador Obed Joseph commended UPDF and its leadership for the support and involvement in keeping peace and stability both in Uganda and in the region.

He noted that this is premised on the earlier peace normalization meeting between the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and President Yoweri Museveni when the duo met in Uganda.

The Israel Ambassador in Uganda raised concerns channeling Uganda’s defence ministry to concretize its Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Israel on shared security challenges and how they can be addressed.

“A steering committee on defence dialogue to outweigh challenges in a  specific area is important,” he elaborated, and further proposed the need for Uganda to host a regional seminar between military  colleges in East Africa to identify more opportunities and threats to regional stability.

The Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi alluded to the fact that completing negotiations that will pen-down the MoU on Defence Cooperation between the two countries will enhance UPDFs defence capabilities.

The meeting was also attended by the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs (MODVA) Under Secretary in charge of Finance and Administration Mrs. Edith Buturo who represented the Permanent Secretary, UPDF Chief of Personnel and Administration Maj Gen George Igumba who represented the UPDF Joint Chief of Staff and the Honorary Counsel State of Israel Mrs. Ishta K. Muganga.

  1. I manage a vape store directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that also sells CBD items. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory. We do not offer for sale CBD items such as CBD oil. We merely offer web marketing services to CBD companies. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health Merchant and if you take a good look, you will witness that they sell a somewhat substantial range of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different firms. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has constricted my payment options and now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely unlawful and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform benchmark to all firms. I am yet to check with yet another attorney from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
