Kenyan First Lady Margaret Kenyatta will participate along with her USA counterpart, Melania Trump, in an initial round of talks today between the countries' presidents, the White House said on Monday. And we are here to cement that partnership.

The four proceeded for a bilateral meeting in the Oval Office before addressing the media with short statements.

President Trump said Kenya and the USA will continue to work together to grow their partnerships in trade, investments and security. We do a lot of trade. And we do a lot of tourism. "We're in a very good mood". "We appreciate very much your being with us here", President Trump said. "We are here to strengthen the support we have received as a country, especially with regards to our security and defense cooperation has been huge", Kenyatta affirmed. "This is really great", President Trump said.

The flight is set to be the national carrier's maiden nonstop flight to the United States and comes ahead of KQ's official launching of direct flights to NY on October 28th.

They cited the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) as one of the main areas that is set to benefit from the direct flights from Nairobi.

Country Garden's shares pared gains to 2.2 per cent after Dr Mahathir's comments, having risen as much as 3.9 per cent earlier. But critics said the deals were unfavourable to Malaysia.

USA first lady Melania Trump, who helped welcome Kenyatta and his wife to the White House, is planning a solo trip to Africa this fall.

Uhuru and Trump then joined their aides in the cabinet room for expanded talks.

The First ladies also held talks in the Diplomatic Reception Room in the West Wing of the White House.

Monday meetings coincide with a report on Financial Times that Mr Trump had described Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, 75, as "lifeless" shortly after the two men met at the White House in April.

Advocates of closer US-Africa ties hope his encounter with the younger, more urbane Mr. Kenyatta, 56, will breathe fresh life into a relationship with a region that Washington is seen to have neglected as other countries, notably China, develop ever-closer trade and investment ties with the continent.
