CAIRO: A delegation of the Kenyan parliament arrived in Cairo Airport Friday in a three-day visit to meet with Egyptian officials, Youm7 reported.

The delegation includes four members of parliament from the defense and foreign committees to discuss Egyptian-Kenyan relations and developments in Egypt.

Kenyan ambassador to Cairo Mahmoud Nayel received the delegation at the airport, according to Youm7.

In January, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shokry visited Nairobi in a three-day visit to attend the sixth round of the Egyptian-Kenyan Joint Committee Conference and business forum.

During his visit, Shokry presented a medical aid shipment from Egypt to Kenyatta hospital, according to a ministry statement.

A large delegation from Egypt’s Children Cancer Hospital 57357 had visited Kenya late 2014 to train doctors by treating ten Kenya children in the field of radiotherapy, according to MENA.

After Egypt regained its membership at the African Union after a year of suspension following the 2013 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, Cairo launched the Egyptian Agency for Development Partnerships (EADP) in July 2014 to enhance cooperation with African nations, especially in the Nile Basin.

The activities of the EADP have included military and medical training and economic coordination.
