Jaishankar interacts with the Indian diaspora in Kenya | India News
Jaishankar arrived in Kenya on Saturday for a three-day visit aimed at strengthening India’s relations with the main East African country.
“The Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs of India @DrSJaishankar, who is currently on an official visit to Kenya, had a productive online interaction with a cross section of the Indian diaspora in Kenya on June 13,” tweeted the top -Indian police station late Sunday evening.
The meeting was moderated by India’s High Commissioner to Kenya Dr Virander Paul, he said. Kenya has a vibrant community of people of Indian descent which currently numbers around 80,000 people, including around 20,000 Indian citizens.
On Saturday, Jaishankar and his Kenyan counterpart Raychelle Omamo had a “fruitful discussion” on bilateral cooperation that the two countries will advance through a joint commission.
“A detailed exchange on regional and global issues that befits two members of the UNSC. A historic solidarity is today a modern partnership,” Jaishankar tweeted after the talks.
