President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday afternoon held talks with the recently elected president of Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, at State House, Nairobi.
During their talks the two leaders explored ways and means of strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries.
President Kenyatta assured his counterpart of Kenya’s commitment in helping the DRC achieve political stability saying that Kenya has learned valuable lessons from past political tensions, which the country is willing to share with the Great Lakes nation.
“Thank you for coming and we are looking forward to strengthening the partnership between our two countries for the benefit of our citizens,” said President Uhuru.
“We will continue to help you achieve peace and stability because we have had similar experience which we can share. Our country has been able to calm down political temperatures through the famous Building Bridges Initiative,” he continued.
The President said Kenya has for decades hosted Congolese refugees some of whom have since been adopted as Kenyans adding that the two countries have a lot to share in terms of cultural heritage.
