Media highlights Ethiopia’s position against terrorism in East Africa

Addis Ababa, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) The medias described the position of the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, against terrorism in East Africa as "energetic" and "categorical".

These terms are abundant in accounts of Ahmed’s visit to Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, published by Walta TV, the Ethiopian News Agency and Fana Broadcasting Corporate, among others.

The prime minister arrived in Mogadishu on Wednesday to participate in a regional forum called to intensify the fight against the extremist group Al-Shabaab,issue that he considers to be a priority for African governments.

The press also underlined the ruler’s agenda, which included a meeting with the president of Kenya, William Ruto, and another with the Ethiopian forces deployed to fight against Al-Shabaab in Mogadishu, under the auspices of the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia.

Ahmed posted on Facebook and Twitter that he discussed with Ruto strategies “to strengthen bilateral ties through infrastructure development, increasing trade and investment, as well as regional issues.”

He also pointed out that the Ethiopian troops operating in Somalia informed him how anti-terrorist operations are progressing and their willingness to continue the struggle against all extremist and violent actions.

A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office assured the governments of Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia agreed to develop a concerted policy against terrorism as a basis for guaranteeing security and developing regional integration.

For the first time under the presidency of Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, Somalia hosts a meeting of this type, and according to the Somali Minister of Information, Daud Aweys, “a unified strategy between the front-line States of the Horn of Africa” has begun”.
