WINDHOEK, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Namibia and Kenya have agreed to cement their diplomatic and economic ties for the future, a Kenyan diplomat said on Thursday.

"On the international front Namibia supports Kenya's bid for a seat in the Security Council and in return Kenya supports all of Namibia's international relations policies. This support is key for the both nations and our relations will continue to strengthen with such engagements," Kenyan High Commissioner to Namibia Benjamin Langat told Xinhua.

Langat also reiterated that both Namibia and Kenya are keenly pushing for improved relations though the grandiose African Continental Free Trade Agreement meant to hasten inter-Africa trade.

"I must also admit that although efforts have been made in driving the Free Trade Area agreement in Africa, trade relations (in Africa) are still lagging behind," he said, adding that Kenya and Namibia will see more regular trades between each other in future.

Langat added that the forthcoming official visit by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta to Namibia next week for the independence celebrations is a sign of growing relations between the two countries.
