Nairobi(Mogadishu24)-The governments of Kenya and Belarus strengthened their bilateral relations during the visit of Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko to the State House in Kenya on Monday.

The Belarusian president was received by Kenyan President William Samoi Ruto, and they discussed ways to broaden the scope of their cooperation in key areas, including renewable energy, trade, investment, and education.

This move aims to leverage technology to enhance agricultural productivity in Kenya, contributing to the country’s food security and economic growth.

President Ruto expressed optimism about the immense opportunities that could be harnessed for the mutual benefit and prosperity of both Kenya and Belarus.

He highlighted the significant potential for collaboration, emphasizing Kenya’s keen interest in tapping into Belarus’s advanced technology in agriculture.

“Immense opportunities exist between Kenya and Belarus that must be exploited for the prosperity of the two countries. Kenya is particularly keen on harnessing the Eastern European country’s advanced technology in agriculture to boost productivity,” President Ruto said.

The two presidents agreed to explore new avenues for collaboration, fostering economic growth and development in both nations.

“We agreed to broaden our ties to renewable energy, trade, investment, and education,” he added.

Kenya’s regional and international influence has been growing as it actively participates in global and regional matters, such as security and peace.

Last week, Kenya signed five memoranda of understanding with India aimed at enhancing ties in the sectors of health, energy, ICT, and Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises.

Kenya has also strengthened its diplomatic ties with Djibouti through inter-parliamentary cooperation during Kenyan Speaker Moses Wetangula’s visit to Djibouti Parliament.
