U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken meets with Kenyan Prime Cabinet Secretary and Cabinet Secretary for Foreign and Diaspora Affairs Musalia Mudavadi at the State Department Thursday to highlight the longstanding strategic partnership between the two countries.

Blinken expressed gratitude for the relationship with Kenya, "a key democratic partner," and said he looked forward to working together on bilateral issues and opportunities to address regional and global challenges.

"The work that Kenya is doing to promote regional peace and security, the efforts that we're also making together to deepen and strengthen our economic relationship. All of these, I think, are very important and positive signs of the depth and breadth of the relationship," Blinken said.

Mudavadi extended greetings from Kenyan President William Ruto and echoed Blinken's remarks on discussing "consolidating" the partnership between the United States and Kenya.
