Aharonovitch signed the agreement with his Kenyan counterpart, George Kinuthia Saitoti, as Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman looked on.

The agreement will see the security forces of Israel and Kenya share technological means to enhance their joint efforts.

It comes amid reports of a new push for cooperation between Israel and African states that feel threatened by radical Islamism.
