Kenya and Iran have inked five Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with the aim of strengthening the bilateral ties between the two nations.

The agreements were signed in the presence of President William Ruto and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi at State House, Nairobi on Wednesday morning.

The MoUs signed include the cooperation in the field of animal health and livestock production which aims to provide mutual cooperation to control, prevent and eradicate animal diseases and facilitate trade of commodities between the two nations.

The second one is in the field of Information Communication and Technology. The two nations aim to establish a framework for consultation and cooperation on the basis of equality of mutual benefit to facilitate, strengthen, develop and diversify information and communication technology.

The third one focuses on the field of culture and heritage, with an objective to establish a framework in which the parties will collaborate on the basis of equality and mutual benefit to strengthen cooperation in the field of culture including conservation and preservation of cultural and historical heritage.

Bolstering cooperation in the fisheries sector is the fourth MoU, which aims to set principles and means of implementation of aqua-culture to enhance the productivity of the blue economy and specifically catalyze the local fishing industry.

The last one focused on the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVETs) to establish a framework for closer cooperation for mutual benefit in the field of exchanging educational experiences, training, educational consultancy and equipping TVET centers.

President Ruto expressed optimism that the MoUs will yield fruitful bilateral engagements.

"These memoranda will enhance and further deepen our bilateral relations for sustainable growth and development between our two countries," he said.

Raisi’s rare Africa tour is part of Iran’s latest diplomatic efforts to reduce the Islamic nation's isolation by forging new alliances.

His three-day trip also includes Uganda and Zimbabwe and will be the first by an Iranian president to Africa in 11 years.
