President Ruto leaves the country for official visits to DRC, South Korea
President William Ruto will hold bilateral talks with his DRC counterpart Felix Tshisekedi on several areas.
He will then proceed on a three-day official visit to South Korea for bilateral talks with President Yoon Suk-Yeal.
President William Ruto will on Sunday, November 20 depart the country for a one-day official visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The Head of State will hold bilateral talks with his DRC counterpart Felix Tshisekedi on areas of mutual interest, including trade and investments, regional integration, and the security situation of Eastern DRC.
Kenya is playing a crucial role as a member of the East African Community in support of the 'Nairobi Peace Process', which involves talks between the DRC government and the armed groups in the Eastern part of the country, to restore peace and security in the region.
Kenya has since sent its troops for a peacekeeping mission in the region, as part of the East African Community Regional Force.
After his visit in DRC, President Ruto will on Monday, November 21 proceed on a three-day official visit to South Korea for bilateral talks with President Yoon Suk-Yeal.
"The President will explore partnerships in key sectors of the government's economic transformation agenda, including agriculture, energy, infrastructure and public health, with engagements that will culminate to the signing of trade agreements between the two nations," a circular from the President's office reads in part.
The circular adds: "Kenya will also advance negotiations to open markets for her exports as part of growing bilateral trade. Kenya and South Korea enjoy cordial ties founded on common values, mutual trust and benefit."
