NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenya's presidential spokesman says the U.S. Secretary of State will visit Kenya this month to discuss regional security.

Manoah Esipisu said Sunday John Kerry will hold discussions with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Foreign Affairs Minister Amina Mohammed on the upheaval in South Sudan and security in violence-plagued Somalia.

When Kerry was in Kenya last year he urged Kenyatta not to close Dadaab, the world's largest refugee camp, without stability in Somalia and called on South Sudan's warring leaders to form a transitional government. Kenyatta has since said Kenya will close Dadaab camp this year. South Sudan is threatened by a return to civil war after another falling out between President Salva Kiir and former Vice President Riek Machar.
