Egypt's President Abel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed with his Kenyan counterpart Uhuro Kenyatta boosting bilateral relations and African development during a meeting on Wednesday in Cairo.

The Kenyan president stopped briefly in Cairo for the meeting with El-Sisi before heading to London.

The two African leaders met in February in Nairobi to discuss bolstering development projects between Nile Basin countries.

El-Sisi said he agreed with Kenyatta that development efforts should be undertaken in all Nile Basin countries to make the most out of this vital resource.

The two leaders agreed also on intensifying efforts to restore stability in East Africa and the Horn of Africa.

In November, Kenya's Vice President William Ruto visited Cairo to discuss with the Egyptian president strengthening cooperation in various fields between African countries in general and Nile Basin countries in particular.

Ruto announced at the time that Kenya has exempted Egyptians from obtaining travel visas in advance to visit the country.
