Somalia lifted the ban on Kenyan khat imports, signaling a thaw with Kenya following a visit by Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who struck an agreement with his counterpart, Uhuru Kenyatta, on Friday.
Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud arrived in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi on Friday in his first visit to the neighboring East African country since his election in May.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Kenyatta, Mohamud said “there is a lot to bring us together than to divide us.”
“The common challenges we have are not limited to terrorism or droughts. We have a lot more challenges,” he added.
