The United States Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken expressed his appreciation for Kenya’s support to back a resolution by the United Nations Security Council that denounced Russia’s referendums in Ukraine.
Through a telephone conversation with President William Ruto, Blinken went ahead to express appreciation for Kenya’s commitment to upholding international law.
Kenya had backed a resolution by the UN Security Council that denounced Russia’s referendums in Ukraine.
Russia had dismissed a UN Security Council resolution that outlined its plans to unlawfully seize four Ukrainian regions which are Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhya.
The resolution described Russia’s acts as illegal and an attempt to modify Ukraine’s internationally recognized borders.
The talk between Ruto and Blinken also centred on the ongoing US efforts to address the fertiliser crisis.
During the roundtable at the United Nation General Assembly, Ruto explored ways in which the US business community can partner with Kenyan industries to achieve the President’s vision and development agenda.
He also addressed the issue on fertiliser production and green energy to enhance agricultural production, create jobs and develop a more resilient economy.
At the roundtable, Ruto had also mentioned that Kenya is ready for investments and that the partnerships with American businesses will help improve the country’s economic and social transformation.
According to a statement by the US State Department spokesperson Ned Price, the two leaders also discussed the ongoing conflict in Northern Ethiopia that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
