Ethiopia and Kenya Agree On Regional Security Cooperation

Source: ENA

Ethiopia and Kenya stated on Monday (November 19th) that they would work closely together to promote peace and security in the region. The statements came at the technical meeting of the 34th Kenya- Ethiopia Joint Ministerial Commission (JMC) which opened yesterday in Nairobi, Kenya.

The two-day Joint Ministerial Commission (JMC) meeting will discuss strengthening of bilateral ties in the areas of politics, socio-economics, security and foreign affairs and will culminate in the signing of draft bilateral agreements."Kenya and Ethiopia have agreed to accelerate efforts aimed at searching for peace and stability in the Horn of Africa, including consolidation of the gains in Somalia," said Kenya's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary, Thuita Mwangi. He added that the meeting would address pending cooperation instruments identified during the 33rd session of the JMC which was held in Ethiopia. Wondimu Asaminew, Director General of the African Directorate of Ethiopia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, noted that Ethiopia attached great importance to its relations with Kenya.

"A second meeting of senior officials in less than six months underlines the paramount importance of our bilateral cooperation," he said, adding that both nations "are committed to enhancing cooperation on major regional and international issues of interest". Ato Wondimu added that both parties would work together to promote peace and stability in the continent as well as strengthen the institutions of the African Union and of its development program, the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD).

One of the achievements made by Ethiopia’s wise leadership for the last 2 decades is peace and security at both local and regional levels.

Kenya is dreaming of regional power increasing military budget like never before, backed by the west trained by Israel. recently Kenya and British opened military equipment ammunition manufacture near Mombasa. The west feel comfortable with Kenya than Ethiopia. This prime minister just taking order from America embassy, Debretsion, Azeb or Bereket.

Ethiopia has been begging Kenya for regional security cooperation for very long time but simply ignored now it’s their time to learn the hard lesson and work together for the sake of peace and stability.

To. Our Kenyan Brother and Sisters.

We Ethiopians are very committed to the our brotherhood connections, we have with our African allies, particulary Kenya and D’Jabuti which we neighbors.
We must not forget that we have same
enemies and destiny. Our enemies did
not want to see strong African countries. Those who will never even allow to use our waters.
It seems before ten years ago that some young Kenya politicians didn’t
the importance of our alliances, when we heard one Kenyan minister in the goverment of Daniel Arab Moy said that Kenya has not any problems
with Somali insurgents and Muslim fanatics as Ethiopia does. Look what is happening now. Did he forgot what
happened in 1964 to 1966 after Kenya
got its independences. when the Somalia sent SHIFTAS to Kenyan Nothern region.
The reality of the problem is not only confined to trouble of recently
Al-shabab terrorists or Al-ithad but
are more deeper than that in reality. Somalia encouraged by the Arab countries has goal in their minds and constitution to annex Kenay is nothern region as they want also to annex the Ogaden region of Ethiopia as well as Republic of Djabuti. This is what believe in their fantasy as Greater Somalia.
in addition to their hate to Christians as a Muslim extermisim that became now religion of all East African Muslim.
Kenyans should be prepared to face the reality of the long un escapable
war to defend their existences.
We have been that war for long time
and we will be with you in the days
of war and in the days of war.
Kenyan are part of our flesh and blood as Africans.

Out of many reasons why Nations keep communicating with other nations in good diplomatic term is because of predictability and legitimacy to solve every problem popping up at any time in this self insufficient world .Ethiopia and Kenyan relations also depend based on these factors.
Though Kenya is considered all weather ally of Ethiopia all of these years since Kenyan independence, recently Ethiopian policy or activities are looked through spite and malice game by some Ogadeni dominated Kenyan Government.
Muhamed Yusuf Haji Defense minister of Kenya- Ogadeni
Nouredin Yusuf his son a rising star in the Kenyan Security apparatus-Ogadeni .
Farah Moalim deputy speaker of parliament-Ogadeni.
IGAD’s representative for Somalia ,Iyas Barre-Ogadeni.
In 2011 deputy speaker of Kenyan parliament Mr Moalim visiting Puntland accused Ethiopian policy being the cause of Somalian conflagration.If I have a chance I would have asked him Why Operation Linda Nchi is different than Ethiopian intervention based on our Biblical prophecy of 1 Kings 18:44.
