Kenyan PM Meets Iranian VP.
The Kenyan premier extended a very warm welcome to the Iranian first vice-president and his entourage.
Rahimi and the Kenyan prime minister are due to have bilateral talks and will then attend a meeting of the two countries' delegations.
Earlier today, the Iranian vice-president said upon arrival at Nairobi Airport that "we are resolved in this trip to further expand the bilateral relations in all spheres".
He reminded Iran's key role in Kenya's developmental projects, and said he would study and follow up on accelerated implementation and completion of these plans and projects during his current visit.
Elaborating on the agenda of his visit to Kenya, Rahimi said, "We will discuss regional situation and conditions as well as international issues with the Kenyan officials in this trip."
Rahimi further underlined that during his talks with the officials of the African nation, the two sides are also slated to make decisions on consolidation of ties and bolstering of interactions and exchanges.
Rahimi left Tehran for the Kenyan capital at the head of a high-ranking politico-economic delegation earlier today.
Rahimi and his entourage are also due to visit Tanzania later this week.
During the five-day tour of the two African nations, the Iranian vice-president will meet with senior Kenyan and Tanzanian authorities as well as officials in Zanzibar to discuss bilateral ties and consolidation of trade and economic relations.
Rahimi and his accompanying delegation are due to ink several cooperation agreements and contracts during the visit to the African nations.
