India and Kenya are currently serving in the United Nation Security Council

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar will pay a three day official visit to Kenya from Saturday and will chair, along with his Kenyan counterpart, the 3rd meeting of the India-Kenya Joint Commission meeting which will review all aspects of the bilateral relationship.

The last meeting of the Joint Commission was held in New Delhi in March 2019.

In the course of his June 12 to June 14 visit the EAM will also meet with other Ministers of the Kenyan government to take forward the India-Kenya relationship.

The development partnership is an important aspect of the relationship between the two countries which the visit will seek to deepen.

The EAM will also interact with the thriving Indian-origin community, an important bridge between the two countries.

India and Kenya are members of the Commonwealth. Kenya is an active member of the African Union with which India has long-standing ties.
