East African defense intelligence agencies have agreed to work together

Addis Ababa-(Berberanews)-After a two-day forum in Addis Abeba, East African Military Intelligence Institutions agreed to work on regional peace and security issues, according to the Ethiopian National Defense Force.

The Addis Abeba peace and security administration bureau, on the other hand, announced that it is increasing community security patrol activities in order to prevent crime.

The East African Defense Intelligence Forum, which took place between April 16 and 17, 2022, was attended by Djibouti, South Sudan, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Ethiopia.

According to the report, the countries signed an agreement to work together to combat “terrorists” and “anti-peace forces.”

According to the report, the countries agreed to work together to create a “peaceful and secure Africa” by collaborating on border, cyber, social media, social affairs, environmental protection, youth unemployment, and a variety of other issues in addition to security.

This comes just a few weeks after the (ENDF) Chief of Staff, Field Marshal Berhanu Jula, and his counterpart Chief of the Kenyan Defense Forces, General Robert Kariuki Kibochi, met in Nairobi on 30 March and agreed to take the lead in strengthening the East Africa Standby Force (EASF) and working together for mutual peace and security, according to the Ethiopian Embassy in Nairobi.

Lidiya Girma, deputy head of Addis Abeba’s peace values department, stated that the bureau is collaborating with the community to prevent and control illegal activities in the city.

She went on to say that work was being done to reorganize a previously existing public army from central command to district level based on residential blocs, with the goal of making it public and operational in the near future.
