COOPERATION: RECSA & IGAD STRENGTHEN COOPERATION, RENEW MOU

Nairobi, Djibouti: RECSA Executive Secretary Lt. Gen. Badreldin E. Abdelgadir on 29th July hosted the IGAD Executive Secretary Amb. Eng.  Mahboub M. Maalim in an affirmation of the cooperation between the two regional bodies that share a common vision of peace, stability and development. The high-level engagement followed the renewal of the IGAD-RECSA Memorandum of Understanding in Djibouti at the IGAD Secretariat on 25th July.

The high-level engagement and the renewal of the MoU serves to reinstate the formal relations established between RECSA and IGAD in the first Memorandum of Understanding of 10th August 2009. It also seeks to reinvigorate cooperation, and to facilitate the effective undertaking of complementary and joint projects and activities that contribute to enhancing peace and security for development in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and Bordering States.

IGAD and RECSA will work to promote strategic partnerships towards strengthening the capacity of RECSA and IGAD Member States on prevention, control and reduction of proliferation and trafficking/circulation of Small Arms and Light Weapons; in addition to conducting joint programs on counter-terrorism, conflict prevention, stabilization and promotion of governance and security sector reforms within the region.
