This is why Kikwete requested him to talk with FDLR and stop Congolese massacre.

...
The call to talk to FDLR was made by Tanzania's President Jakaya Kikwete at a meeting of Heads of State from the Great Lakes Region in Addis Ababa, on the sidelines of last month's African Union Summit in Ethiopia.
Kikwete's remarks have soured the already shaky relations between the two neighbouring countries with foreign affairs ministers from both countries issuing statements.
(Read: Dar-Kigali spat a serious matter)
Kikwete had suggested that Rwanda should consider direct talks with the FDLR rebels since the military option didn't seem to be working.
President Kikwete also urged Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni to talk to the Allied Democratic Forces and the National Army for the Liberation of Uganda, as well as asking DR Congo's President Joseph Kabila to talk to the M23 rebels and other forces operating in eastern Congo.
...
The remarks have triggered a diplomatic row between the two countries although observers say it is a pointer to the fact that despite the cordial relationships, Presidents Kagame and Kikwete have never been friends.
...
Kagame publicly threatening to hit President Kikwete.
...
The grudge against Kikwete has other sources as well. Kagame's big ego does not suffer being second to anybody. Being overshadowed by Kikwete as the most visible leader in the region is an additional source of personal resentment towards the charismatic Tanzanian President who, in less than a year, has been honoured by the official visits of the presidents of the two most powerful nations in the world. The recent attempt by Kagame, Museveni and Uhuru Kenyatta to bypass Kikwete and meet in Entebbe without him underscores a rampant feeling of discomfort at the growing strategic importance of Tanzania in the region.
...
But Kikwete also knows that those who sow chaos in order to harvest in violence will not easily give up their booty. By accepting to step in, to make his voice for peace heard, Tanzanian President Kikwete knew there was a price. It is now up to the entire population of the region (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and obviously Tanzania) to step in and stand with President Kikwete, ensure his protection and denounce any attempt to threaten his physical integrity.
...
It is for this reason that the recent remarks by President Jakaya Kikwete, calling on the authorities in Kigali to hold peace talks with the Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FNLD) to end the war of 17 years are justified and valid.
...
Njia moja wapo ya kuikabili changamoto hiyo ni ushauri aliotoa Rais Kikwete.
...
Kikwete should never ever dare to apologyse.. If he does he will have to re-apologyse to Tanzanians including the then Chairman of Frontline countries and farther of this nation.
...
In his remarks, Kikwete is quoted to have called upon the Rwandan government to "negotiate" with the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), an issue that has raised anger among the genocide survivors in and outside of Rwanda.
...
During an enclosed meeting called by the UN Secretary General in Addis Ababa, Kikwete is also reported to have argued that since Kinshasa was in talks with the M23 rebels, then it was about time Kigali opened negotiations with the FDLR rebels. Kikwete also pushed argument to Uganda, stating that Uganda should do likewise with its Congo-based rebel force, Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).
In a statement, released by Alice Umutoni, Vice Coordinator of the US- based organizing committee of the 19th Commemoration of the Genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda, the genocide survivors asked Kikwete to openly apologize to all survivors of the genocide in Rwanda and Rwandans in general, Congolese, Americans and many more people who have suffered from the FDLR terrorism.

During last week's 50th anniversary of the African Union in Addis Ababa, President Kikwete called on Rwanda to hold talks with Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) rebels because the military option had failed to end the war with them.
Kigali has strongly opposed the proposal, with Rwanda's Foreign Affairs minister, Ms Louise Mushikiwabo, quoted by Radio France Internationale (RFI) as describing Mr Kikwete's remarks as "aberrant" and "shocking".

At the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Organization of African Unity, celebrated in Addis Ababa, the Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete underscored the necessity of talks between the governments of Rwanda, Uganda and DR Congo with the armed groups fighting these governments from Congolese territory.

Some of the Tutsi genocide survivors' organizations have termed President Kikwete a 'genocide denier'.

Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete and General Paul Kagame of Rwanda are in Japan where they are taking part in the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V), an event held every five years since 1993.

The two African heads of states met, a week after the Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete urged President Paul Kagame to hold direct talks with his armed rebellion in order to bring peace in the Great Lakes region (see here).
...
Meanwhile, Kikwete flew directly from Addis Ababa to Rwakitura to attend the funeral. Later Kabila flew from Addis Ababa as well to Kinshasa before flying to Rwakitura to lay a wreath on Mzee Amos' Kaguta's grave, apparently, sources claim, on the instigation of Kikwete.

Kikwete also urged African states to accept the decision that Kenyans will make in the elections
Tanzania President Jakaya Kikwete on Sunday said Kenyans should be allowed to elect leaders in the next General Election without undue interference.
Mr Kikwete also urged African states to accept the decision that Kenyans will make in the elections.
Mr Kikwete was speaking after meeting a Kenyan delegation comprising of Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa in State House, Dar es Salaam.

ICC: Uhuru takes TNA, URP team to Kikwete
...
The Hague case against four Kenyans featured at a meeting between Mr Uhuru Kenyatta and Tanzania's President Jakaya Kikwete a day before ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda arrives in Nairobi.
...
The Deputy Prime Minister flew to Tanzania to enlist Kikwete's support for his presidential bid and asked the international community to allow Kenyans elect their leaders without interference. Uhuru, who alongside Eldoret North MP William Ruto, is fighting to succeed President Kibaki while saddled with serious crimes against humanity charges, led a delegation that visited Kikwete that included Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa, who is variously talked about as his likely running mate.
...
It is believed the Kenyan delegation, buoyed by the fact that Kikwete enjoys good relations with top Western capitals, and having played a key role in the stabilisation of Kenya following the 2008 post-election violence, chose Kikwete to send a message to ICC on the importance of having them run for the sake of Kenya's long-term stability and peaceful elections.

...
It is significant that Uhuru flew out a fortnight after former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, who brokered Kenya's peace deal alongside Kikwete, was in Kenya with the message that an Uhuru or Ruto presidency would not augur well for Kenya in the eyes of the global community.
...
A statement from Uhuru's Director of Communications Mr Munyori Buku entitled "Kenyans are masters of their own destiny" read in part: "President Kikwete called for the respect of the "decision of the people of Kenya".
...
Kikwete hosted the delegation from Uhuru's The National Alliance, Wamalwa's New Ford Kenya and Ruto's United Republican Party for a three-hour discussion at State House in Dar-es-Salaam.
...
"Mr Uhuru was adamant and reiterated his public comments on Annan while Kikwete said people should be left to elect their leaders without interference," said Wamalwa's spokesman Mr Tony Gachoka.
...
Rais Kikwete is wading into waters he has no business wading into and somebody needs to tell him so.
