Kenya and Israel will explore more opportunities for partnership in food production and irrigation, blue economy, border control, and health, following a meeting between President William Ruto and Israel’s Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Lotem on Friday at State House.

”We are looking to explore more opportunities for partnership in food production and irrigation, blue economy, border control, and health,” President Ruto said.

The two countries are expanding their relationship as they mark the 60th anniversary of bilateral ties.

Israel was the first country on 10th December 1963, to lay a foundation stone for her Embassy in Kenya, two days before the declaration of Kenya’s independence on 12th December 1963.

Israel was also the first country to build its Embassy in Nairobi.

President Ruto noted that over the years, the two countries have been having good relations.

“Kenya-Israel ties have grown from strength to strength because of cooperation in education, trade, agriculture, and security,” he said.

He spoke after meeting the Israeli Ambassador to Kenya at State House, Nairobi.

In May, President William Ruto went to Israel on a two-day State visit following an invitation by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. While on his visit,  Ruto toured several agricultural projects in Israel and held high-level discussions on areas of mutual interest to the two countries.
