After the elaborate reception ceremony, President Kenyatta took a short drive, escorted by a ceremonial cavalry of horse riders, to the nearby Belém Palace, the official residence of the Portuguese President, where the two leaders led their respective delegations in bilateral talks and addressed the media.
