NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye has met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on the second day of her three-day visit to Kenya. She received a 21-gun salute and a military guard of honor.

Park is in Kenya, East Africa’s largest economy, to improve trade between the two nations which currently favors South Korea. Kenya is the third leg of her African tour which started with Ethiopia and Uganda. The two presidents held talks Tuesday and were expected to sign agreements later in the day.

According to South Korea’s ambassador to Kenya Young Dae Kwon, Park is travelling with a delegation of more than 200 who include businessmen and government officials.

Kwon said bilateral agreements in security, health, agriculture, information technology, trade and culture will be signed in the tour.
