Ethiopian Intelligence, FBI Agree To Jointly Combat Terrorism

Ethiopia’s National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) and the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly combat terrorism.

The MoU was signed by Demelash Gebremichael, Director-General Commissioner of NISS and Charles H. Kable, Assistant Director for FBI and Director of the United States Terrorist Screening Center (TSC).

Demelash on the occasion said Ethiopia has made a significant contribution to the peace and stability of the Horn of Africa, in addition to its own national security, by successfully thwarting terrorist attempts carried out by Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda and IS at various times in the past.

Ethiopia is ready to work together with other countries to fight against terrorism, he said, adding, the agreement signed with the US to combat terrorism at international and regional levels, in particular, would make Ethiopia’s efforts more successful.

Based on the MoU, the two sides share technical information regarding terrorism, thereby reducing the vulnerability of the countries to terrorism, said Charles H. Kable.

The agreement will also help to take measures to prevent terrorist plots by Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda and IS in the Horn of Africa, in the capital Addis Ababa, the seat of the African Union (AU), and at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, he added.

According to a statement NISS sent to FBC, the technical team of the two countries has started joint operations today.
