Kenyan Minister of Foreign Affairs on working visit to Saharawi Republic

Shaheed El-Hafed, Dec. 4, 2016 (SPS) - Kenyan Foreign Affairs Minister Amina Mohamed arrived Sunday in the Sahrawi refugee camps on an official working visit to the Sahrawi Republic.

The Kenyan Minister of Foreign Affairs was greeted at Tindouf airport by Minister of Water Resources and Environment, Ibrahim Mokhtar, and she is expected to be received in the Wilaya of Boujdour, Sahrawi refugee camps, by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohamed-Salem Ould Salek, and members of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front and the SADR government.

The visit of the Kenyan minister constitutes "a unique opportunity to continue regular consultations between the two countries on regional and international issues of common interest, particularly those of peace and security in Africa", and it also considered a confirmation of Africans to stand by the just struggle of the Saharawi people and promote the position of the Sahrawi state as a founding member within the African Union.

Kenya and the Sahrawi Republic have close relations of friendship and solidarity, especially the continuous support of Kenya to the just struggle of the Sahrawi people for self-determination and independence.  (SPS)
