The White House said in a statement that Biden applauded "Kenya's leadership in the Horn of Africa and commitment to counter-terrorism, economic growth, addressing climate change, and sustainable development."

The statement said the leaders also discussed the deteriorating humanitarian and human rights crises in Ethiopia's Tigray region and the need to prevent further loss of life and ensure humanitarian access.
