Egypt, Kenya sign security cooperation agreement

Egypt and Kenya Wednesday signed a defense cooperation agreement aiming at deepening partnership in matters of mutual benefit, the eastern African country said, Anadolu news agency reports.
“During the bilateral defense talks, the parties signed a Technical Agreement on Defense Cooperation aimed at deepening partnership in matters of mutual benefit,” Kenya’s Defense Ministry said without giving further details.
Monica Juma, Kenya’s Defense Minister and Egyptian Chief of Staff Lt. Gen Mohamed Farid Hegazy signed the agreement.
