Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Wu Peng paid a courtesy call on H.E. Mr. Hillary Mutyambai, Inspector General of Police on May 22nd to exchange views on deepening cooperation between the police services of both sides. Military attaché Wang Yang was present at the meeting.
Amb. Wu congratulated Mr. Mutyambai for assuming the office, and expressed appreciation to the Kenyan police for its strong support in handling the terrorist attack at Nairobi DusitD2 and the attack on the site of Chinese companies. He said that President Kenyatta visited China three times over the past year, when the two heads of state reached important consensus on bilateral relations, bringing it to a new stage of comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership and guiding it into the best period in history. Within this background, China will work together with Kenya to deepen police exchanges and cooperation, and support Kenya’s endeavor to build up the ranks of the police and modernize its equipment, so as to ensure the safety of major projects under the “Belt and Road” Initiative and jointly safeguard legitimate rights and interests of Chinese nationals and businesses in Kenya.
On his part, Inspector General Mutyambai welcomed Amb. Wu on his assumption of office, fully agreeing to the views and suggestions of Amb. Wu. He thanked China for its strong support and assistance to Kenya over the years on capacity building of the police, and promised to maintain close contact and communication with the Chinese embassy to foster a favorable environment for China-Kenya practical cooperation in various fields.
