Kenya and Ethiopia inked an agreement on Monday to cooperate in the fight against terrorism, human trafficking, and organized crime.
Temesgen Tiruneh, head of Ethiopia’s National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), and Major General Philip Kameru, head of Kenya’s NIS, signed the agreement.
Ethiopian media said that the signed document’s primary agreement points include the two parties working together to tackle local and regional dangers.
Terrorism, illicit weapons trade, illegal movement of funds, illegal militants, illegal trafficking of people, and other transnational organized crimes all pose serious dangers.
Saif Salem Suleman, chairman of the NIS mission, highlighted the dangers posed to East Africa by terrorism, illicit arms and money, and people trafficking.
And so, he said, they’ve agreed to team up with Ethiopia to take on these regional threats head-on.
