Prime Minister Narendra Modi today left for home after concluding his four-nation Africa tour aimed at enhancing ties with the continent.
Prime Minister, who arrived in the Kenyan capital last night on the last leg of his tour, today held talks with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
India and Kenya also decided to deepen and expand cooperation in a wide range of areas as they signed seven pacts, including in the field of defence and security and avoidance of double taxation.
Earlier he visited Tanzania, South Africa and Mozambique as part of the tour. India offered USD 92 million Line of Credit to Tanzania for a key water supply project and signed five agreements with it.
In South Africa, Modi held talks with South African President Jacob Zuma on a wide range of issues, particularly in the economic sphere.
Showcasing India as an attractive destination for defence production, the Prime Minister also sought deeper collaboration in the sector with South Africa, a major arms exporter, even as he thanked it for supporting India’s bid for membership of Nuclear Suppliers Group.
In Mozambique, Modi held wide-ranging talks with President Filipe Nyusi. The two countries signed three pacts, including a significant “long-term agreement” under which India will buy pulses from this African nation to meet its recurring shortfall and contain prices of this commodity.
