Nairobi: Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived here Friday for a visit to Kenya, the last leg of his first Africa visit since taking office in 2013.
China and Kenya have enjoyed a traditional friendship, with their bilateral ties being developed in a sustained, stable and healthy way, Xinhua quoted Li as saying.
The two countries have forged an all-round, wide-scope and multi-facet pattern of cooperation, becoming reliable friends and genuine partners.
Li was greeted by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto at the airport.
The Chinese premier said he expects to exchange views with Kenyan leaders on bilateral relations and issues of common concern, so as to push forward the China-Kenya comprehensive cooperative partnership based on mutual trust and mutual benefit.
He will also meet officials from the UN Environment Programme and the UN Human Settlements Programme, and discuss with them China`s cooperation with the two UN agencies during his stay in Kenya.
Before Kenya, Li visited Ethiopia, Nigeria and Angola. In Nigeria, he attended a World Economic Forum on Africa.
