Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kenya today for talks on terrorism, economic ties and President Barack Obama’s visit to the country in July.

Kerry, who will meet with President Uhuru Kenyatta, opposition leaders and business groups Monday, will also address the refugee situation created in Kenya by unrest in Somalia, the U.S. State Department said. He’ll discuss ways to counter the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab, which has conducted attacks inside Kenya, including the assault on Garissa University that left more than 140 dead.

The top U.S. diplomat is also finding time for some sight-seeing. He is spending this afternoon visiting an elephant orphanage and touring a national park.
