Kenyan delegation tours Mogadishu to boost ties

A Kenyan delegation led by Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Ambassador Macharia Kamau was in Mogadishu, Somalia on Saturday where he led a delegation for talks on bilateral relations.

The two sides discussed ways to boost bilateral relations between the two countries.

”The Ambassador Ali Nur received on Saturday in Mogadishu, the Principal Secretary of the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, HE Amb. Macharia Kamau, and discussed with him the strengthening of bilateral relations & ways to improve the prospects for cooperation,” Ministry of Foreign affairs said in a tweet.

On his part, Ambassador Mohamed Nur added that the two countries had good bilateral ties and should continue to seek solutions to any emerging problems through bilateral talks.

The Kenya Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the visit was aimed at strengthening ties between the two countries’ ties, including on trade, investment and regional cooperation.

“Kenyans and Somalis should focus more on increasing trade and commerce, rather than the political issues,” Amb. Kamau said citing the abundance of fish in Somalia.

Mr Kamau, however, stressed that the prosperity and development of both countries would be realized much faster with a peaceful and stable Somalia.
