Kenya and Ethiopia on Thursday signed a new deal on construction of an oil pipeline.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ethiopia Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn signed the agreement on the proposed pipeline that would run from Lamu to Addis Ababa.
The deal means that the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (Lapsset) project launched in 2012 is still on.
On Thursday, President Kenyatta told reporters that the construction of Lapsset-related facilities will be “fast-tracked.”
These facilities include linking roads between the two countries, an international airport in Isiolo town and a seaport in Lamu.
