42 top military leaders and US army meet in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The U.S. army on Tuesday at the 8th African Land Forces Summit in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa called for the continued cooperation with its African counterparts.

“The security challenges we face are diverse, and African nations contend with some of the most complex challenges in the world — insurgencies, armed conflicts, illicit trafficking, piracy, organized crime, and violent extremist organizations,” Gen. Michael Xavier Garrett, the commander of the U.S. Forces Command said, adding: “These threats have no boundaries — they cross borders, destabilize regions and require significant cooperation and strong partnerships make our efforts to combat these threats far and more effective.”

The four-day summit, co-hosted by the defense department of Ethiopia and the U.S., will work out ways of bincreasing partnerships towards eliminating security threats to create a peaceful, prosperous Africa.
