After a three-day state visit to Senegal and France, President William Ruto flew back into the nation.
Ruto, who arrived on Friday morning, left the nation on Monday evening to begin his trip in France, where he met and spoke with his colleague, Emmanuel Macron.
The two discussed the status of important joint development initiatives, such as regional peace and security.
“Relations between Kenya and France are based on beneficial collaboration in a variety of areas, including trade, energy, health, and infrastructure. We have decided to expand, utilize, and improve current commercial potential,” he stated.
The president of state next took a flight to Senegal, where he attended the Dakar II Feed Africa summit, which had the theme “Food, Sovereignty, and Resilience,” together with more than 20 other leaders from across the continent.
When he presided over a conference on food and agriculture delivery, Ruto declared, “We will develop partnerships, share necessary expertise, and mobilize more funds that will not only boost productivity but also add value to our agriculture.”
Ruto oversaw the opening of the first Kenyan embassy in Francophone Africa in the West African nation of Dakar, with the goal of fostering diplomatic ties between the two nations and helping the area.
He also met with Moroccan Prime Minister Aziz Akhannouch on the sidelines of the meeting and made the announcement that he will open an embassy in Rabat later this year.
