Kenya, Ethiopia ink terrorism and organised crime pact

Kenya and Ethiopia have agreed to work together to prevent terrorism, human trafficking, and organised crime thanks to an agreement signed by the two governments by the Ethiopian director general of National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), Temesgen Tiruneh, and a representative of the director general of Kenya’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) Major General Philip Kameru.

According to the Ethiopian media, the core agreement points stated in the signed agreement are the joint combating of local and regional threats.

Others are threats of terrorism, illegal arms trafficking, illegal financial transfer, illegal militants, illegal human trafficking, transnational organised crimes and threats.

Temesgen said Ethiopia has signed an agreement with African countries to prevent terrorism and related security threats in East Africa and the Horn of Africa.

The head of the delegation at NIS Saif Salem Suleman, pointed out that terrorism, illegal weapons, money and human trafficking are threats to East Africa.

He stated that they have made an agreement to work together with Ethiopia to fight these regional challenges together.

NISS indicates that Ethiopia and Kenya are friendly neighbouring countries and have had good relations in the political, economic and social sectors for a long time.

The two countries have been facing challenges along their borders with Somalia, with Kenya suffering immense consequences given frequent al-Shabaab terror attacks.
