Speaking while on a courtesy call to Deputy President William Ruto at his Karen residence, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for foreign affairs Didier Reyders offered to assist Kenya in ensuring that Somali refugees return to their country in an orderly manner. He said his country will hold a meeting on Somalia in Brussels to chart a way forward after a Tripartite Conference for August 28 to 29 to discuss voluntary repatriation of Somali refugees.

Deputy President Ruto said that Kenya was committed to the peace process in Somalia.

"As a country, we need friends to assist us to enable the refugees go back home. We realize that keeping 600,000 refugees in camps is a big challenge", said the deputy President.

The meeting also discussed joint effort to bring peace in the Great Lakes region especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Southern Sudan.
