President William Ruto has held talks with Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko to enhance bilateral ties.

 The two heads of state had a meeting on December 10 at State House Nairobi during a visit.

  "Met the President of Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko; agreed to broaden our ties to renewable energy, trade, investment and education," stated Ruto on X.

 The Belarusian president arrived in Kenya following his two-day official visit from Equatorial Guinea.

 The visit came after the two heads of state recently met on December 1 in Dubai on the sidelines of the World Climate Summit where President Lukashenko suggested plans for bilateral cooperation.

 “For us to have substantial talks and establish our relations (this is why we are going to talk), I think that you could come to us, I could come to you at any time convenient for you.

 As a result of these visits our specialists could work (just like with Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea) and we could put together some plans for our cooperation while understanding what you need from us. And we could look at your country and determine our needs,” President Lukashenko said.

 Lukashenko said that he was ready to visit Kenya and concurrently invited Ruto to visit Belarus.
