Nairobi — Canada has lifted a travel advisory imposed due to post-election crisis.
Canadian High Commissioner, Mr Ross Hynes, and Deputy Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Mr Deepak Obhrai, announced that relations with Kenya were back to "business as usual".
Canada becomes the first country to the revoke travel warnings. Other countries that imposed the advisories include the US and UK.
Calm returned after former UN Secretary-General, Mr Kofi Annan, brokered a peace deal between President Kibaki and ODM leader, Mr Raila Odinga.
Obhrai said his Government would help in reconstruction if the peace deal was implemented "to reflect the wishes and the aspirations of Kenyans". "My visit is to highlight to Canadians that stability and order have returned. I will make it known to my Government that the way is open for Kenya to drive regional economic growth once again," added Obhrai.
The minister met Raila, House Speaker, Mr Kenneth Marende, and Attorney-General, Mr Amos Wako. He also visited displaced people in the Rift Valley Province, and urged the Government to resettle them.
