Kenya, Sudan To Collaborate In War Against Extremists

NAIROBI, Dec 23 (Bernama-NNN-KBC) — Kenya and Sudan have agreed to work closely to tackle extremist elements threatening the security of Kenya and other countries in the region, said Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The president said after meeting a visiting Sudanese government delegation led by Foreign Affairs Minister Ali Ahmed Karti here Monday that Sudan had agreed for the security organs of both countries to create channels to exchange information and ideas.

Karti said Sudan had managed to contain terrorist elements and wanted to share its knowledge with Kenya.

“Many Kenyans have suffered at the hands of extremists. There should be no space for extremist ideologies in the region and we look to partner with friends in the region and from outside to control them,” Kenyatta said.

Kenyatta encouraged regional governments to redouble their efforts in restoring stability in countries affected by internal conflict.
