Tunisia, Kenya ink 3 memoranda of understanding

Three memoranda of understanding (MoU) were inked on Monday in Nairobi by Tunisia and Kenya, covering the vocational training, employment, health and political consultation fields.

These MoU were signed at the end of a meeting between Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui and his Kenyan counterpart Monica Juma. Jhinaoui is on a two-day visit in Nairobi (October 7-8).

This visit, the first of its kind since the establishment of the diplomatic relations between both countries in 1963, is part of Tunisia’s willingness to expand the platform of its economic partners, a Foreign Ministry press release on Tuesday reads.

The visit will also foster the friendship and co-operation relations binding Tunisia and eastern African countries and the regional economic communities, notably the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

At the end of the meeting, the two officials agreed to hold the 1st session of the Tunisian-Kenyan joint commission during the first quarter of 2020.

Emphasis was also placed on the need to step up political consultations between both countries to co-ordinate positions on regional and international issues of mutual interest.
