President Rajapaksa, who is in the country for a state visit, said Kenya and Sri Lanka have identified and will sign agreements on several areas of cooperation during his visit.
He said he was convinced that there was considerable potential for the expansion of economic relations between Kenya and Sri Lanka.
President Kenyatta said the lasting legacy of the Sri Lankan President is his victory against retrogressive forces including terrorism.
