Nairobi - US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Kenya this month for talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta over regional security.
Presidential spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said on Sunday Kerry would hold discussions with Kenyatta and Foreign Affairs Minister Amina Mohammed on the upheaval in South Sudan and security in violence-plagued Somalia.
When Kerry was in Kenya last year, he urged Kenyatta not to close Dadaab, the world's largest refugee camp, without stability in Somalia and called on South Sudan's warring leaders to form a transitional government.
Kenyatta has since said Kenya will close Dadaab camp this year.
South Sudan is threatened by a return to civil war after another falling out between President Salva Kiir and former vice president Riek Machar.
