Speaking at the embassy on his last day of the State visit to Turkey yesterday, President Kenyatta said the relations between the two countries go back to the 18th century pointing out that the natural relationship must and will be nurtured.

He recalled Turkey President Abdullah Gul’s visit to Nairobi in 2009, saying cooperation between the two countries has grown stronger since.

“We will strengthen our relations in trade, investment, culture and education,” he said.

He cited the many Kenyan students in institutions of higher learning in Turkey as a good indication of the blossoming ties, and asked them to be good ambassadors of Kenya in everything they do.

The function was attended by several African ambassadors representing their countries in Turkey. The President thanked them for their solidarity.

“Let us strengthen our ties in Africa even as we seek partnerships with other parts of the world,” President Kenyatta told the envoys.

“Let us ensure that the spirit of Pan-Africanism rises again.”

The President later travels to Istanbul where he will attend a high profile business meeting organized by the Turkish government for Kenyan and Turkish businesses.
