Egypt, Kenya maintain friendly relations

28 May 2014, 11:16

Nairobi - Outgoing Ambassador of Egypt, Kadri Abdel Mottaleb, said cordial relations existed between his country and Kenya despite the turmoil in the North African country.

These relations date back to the pre- independence days.

Egypt, which has been facing political unrest in the recent past, Mottaleb said, played a key role in the liberation struggle for Kenya.

Mohammed said since 1964, when Kenya opened its Mission in Cairo, the relationship between the two countries had grown in leaps and bounds.
The two countries have continued to expand and strengthen these ties over the years through diplomatic, commercial, technical and scientific cooperation among other areas.

A luncheon has been held in honour of the outgoing Egyptian Ambassador. Senior officials from government and the Egyptian Embassy attended.

Mottaleb said his government would soon launch the Egyptian Agency for Partnership for Development that will consolidate capacity building efforts towards Africa continent.

This will be in addition to the technical support that Egypt has been giving to Kenya for a long time.

In her speech, read by Zaddock Syong’o, Policy Advisor at the Ministry, Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohammed, noted that many Kenyans had been beneficiaries of scholarship awards in specialized fields of Medicine, Agriculture, defense and Diplomacy granted by various institutions of higher learning in Egypt including specialists coming to Kenya to offer technical support.

“The support extended by the Egyptian doctors and academicians seconded to Kenyan hospitals and universities is recognized with much gratitude,” she said.
