Hon. Kahin told the media that the delegation met senior Kenyan government officials and they both agreed to having the Kenya consular offices opened in Hargeisa, the Kenyan Airways to ply the Hargeisa-Nairobi route and most importantly there was high expectations that the Kenyan government would acknowledge the Somaliland national passport as an official travel document.
