Ethiopia, Sudan agree to collaborate on security-related challenges

Ethiopia and Sudan have agreed to work together to tackle peace and security-related challenges in the region.

The move follows Sudan’s Defence Minister’s visit to Addis Ababa to discuss border security issues with Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

Speaking to journalists, Sudan’s Minister of Defence Imad Aldin Adawin said that whatever challenges one state faces, is a concern for both sides and mutual efforts must be exerted to tackle any threats.

Prime Minister Desalegn expressed Ethiopia’s determination to defend any threats posed against the country’s national interests, stating that long standing strategic partnership between Sudan and his country will further be strengthened.

Reports suggest since the construction of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam begun, the relationship between Sudan and Ethiopia has a level that is an all-time high.
