Ethiopia stands firm in the global effort to eliminate terrorism – DPM & FM Demeke

Addis Ababa, June 8, 2023 (FBC) – Deputy Prime Minister & Foreign Minister of Ethiopia Demeke Mekonnen said the international community should deny ISIS, Al-Shabab and other terrorist groups, the opportunity to recruit fighters and mobilize funds.

In his remarks the ministerial meeting, DPM & FM Demeke said that Ethiopia stands firm in the global effort to eliminate terrorism.

It is to be recalled that DPM & FM Demeke Mekonnen has arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to take part in the ministerial meeting of the International Coalition to Defeat ISIS/Daesh.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, the ministerial meeting kicked off this morning with short, minute-long interventions from representatives of the coalition expressing their respective countries’ commitment to fighting terrorist groups, particularly, ISIS.

Ethiopia is fighting terrorism at home and abroad, Demeke said, adding that Al-Shabaab remains a threat to the Horn of Africa and the rest of the world continuing to claim lives and disrupt livelihoods.

“It is critical that we join forces to stop such groups from resurging, expanding, and networking in Africa and other places,” DPM and FM Demeke said. “We must all share the pain these groups inflict in other countries, not just ours, he stressed.”

It is noted that the Coalition, which now has 85 members, seeks to combat Daesh from all angles, from destroying its networks, stymieing the organisation’s propaganda and movement of foreign terrorist combatants across borders, to seriously harming its infrastructure on the economic fronts.
