Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and South African President Jacob Zuma met on Saturday on the sidelines of the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) in Nairobi to discuss regional security and bilateral issues.
The two leaders discussed the situation in South Sudan and how the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) was navigating the peace process in trying to restore sustainable peace, a statement issued by the presidential strategic communications unit said.
They also discussed decisions taken at the African Union summit in Rwanda, and how to accelerate implementation.
The two presidents also touched on deepening bilateral trade relations between Kenya and South Africa.
As a key step to enhance the existing relations between the two countries, Zuma confirmed that he would make a state visit to Kenya in October, the statement said.
