The United States of America will work with Kenya to ensure there is peace in the Horn of Africa.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Kenya is an anchor state that must be on the frontline in advancing stability, especially in Ethiopia, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Blinken praised Kenya’s growing democracy and entrenching of the rule of law and independence of institutions of governance.
He spoke on Thursday during a meeting with President William Ruto at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The Secretary of State said the U.S. will enhance economic ties with Kenya on several fronts such as health, security and agriculture.
Ruto insisted that Kenya will stay on course in creating a democratic society guided by the rule of law and independence of constitutional institutions.
The region is facing various challenges including war, corruption, and hunger among others all attributed to poor leadership.
The areas include Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Sudan and Sudan.
