Angola, Kenya bilateral ties welcomed

16 January 2014, 14:49

Nairobi - Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohamed, hailed the signing of a bilateral agreement with Angola saying the partnership would be beneficial to citizens of both countries.

The countries have launched bilateral relations with the signing of three key agreements that will see the two countries forge partnerships in economic, scientific and technical cooperation.

This followed talks Mohamed and her Angolan counterpart, Georges Chikoti, held in Luanda.

According to a statement, the two signed agreements on the establishment of the Joint Commission Cooperation, Memorandum of Understanding on Political Consultation between the Ministry of External Relation of Angola and Kenya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and the General Agreement on Economic, Scientific, Cultural and Technical Cooperation between the governments of Kenya and Angola.

Mohamed said the signing of the agreements marked the commencement of a bilateral journey that would benefit citizens of the two countries.

“This is a historic event. The intention of the two governments is to ensure that the relationship has a good impact on the citizens of our countries,” Mohamed said.

She said signing of the agreements has opened the gates for the two countries’ consultation and cooperation at the bilateral, regional and multilateral levels.

Chikoti expressed confidence on the agreements working towards boosting relations between Kenya and Angola.

He concurred that the two countries should take advantage of the signed instruments to improve the lives of their citizens.

Mohamed is in Angola as part of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s delegation to the fifth Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Great Lakes Region on Peace and Security.

The meeting has been arranged to discuss the security situation in South Sudan, Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo.
