President Uhuru Kenyatta has assured the global community of Kenya’s commitment to lead Eastern Africa counter-terrorism efforts by working with regional governments and partners.
At the same time, the President reiterated that Kenya will leverage on its membership in the UN Security Council to contribute more to global peace and security.
“Kenya aims to provide leadership in the Horn of Africa by exploring and implementing diplomatic measures in counter-terrorism financing and to work with partners in the broader spectrum of efforts within counter-terrorism, as well as to stem other forms of transnational organized crime.
“Through Kenya’s non-permanent member seat at the United Nations Security Council, Kenya further aims to contribute to global peace and security, with the ultimate goal being the attainment of sustainable development for the year 2021-2022,” the President said.
The Head of State spoke Wednesday evening at State House, Nairobi during a virtual meeting of the Aqaba Process on COVID-19 convened by King Abdullah II of Jordan.
