... President in Kenya then posted this update,
Discussed the global refugee and migrant crisis, regional security, climate change & our improving business environment with President Obama today by telephone. President Obama called me in the context of the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) currently underway in New York. I reiterated my commitment to improving the plight of refugees to President Obama who will host a Summit on refugees later this week. I assured him that Kenya continues to work towards the safe and dignified repatriation of refugees from the Dadaab camp.
This will be in accordance with the norms of the international community. I also urged him to support efforts to secure Somalia & create a politically stable environment to which refugees would feel safe to return. President Obama praised Kenya for strides we have taken towards improving the business environment. He noted a jump of 28 places by our country in the ease of doing business report by the World Bank. The improved business environment in Kenya is a matter that will be discussed at the Africa-U.S. Business summit at UNGA this week. He further noted our pivotal role in securing peace & stability in the region & encouraged me to maintain that leadership role.
We also discussed climate change & especially Kenya’s leadership in the run-up to the Climate Change conference in Paris (COP 21) last year Also the implementation of that agreement, which is one of the key issues under discussion at UNGA. We also discussed Kenya’s 2017 elections & I made clear that I was keen to see a peaceful,open & fair process leading to a credible election. President Obama wished Kenyans well as we grow our country and look to the future with confidence.
