May 15, 2013 (ADDIS ABABA) - Representatives from four bordering states in Ethiopia and Sudan have agreed to work closely to prevent cross-border crimes in a meeting between the two sides.

Authorities in Amhara regional state said on Tuesday that the joint meeting, which aimed at further fostering multilateral cooperation along the common border, was held in north Ethiopia’s Gonder city.

Administrators of the two sides agreed to jointly combat illegal activities along the shared border, particularly the growing issue of human trafficking and smuggling of contraband.

Addressing participants at the meeting, the administrator of North Gonder zone, Gizat Abiyu, said that joint cooperation between the bordering states is playing a crucial role in enhancing the historic ties between the two East African countries.

Following the meeting, both sides vowed to implement a common agreement covering border zones.

Administrators from Ethiopia’s Gonder, Gurishan, Basonda and Doca zones, as well as Dinder in Sudan’s Gedarif area took part in the joint meeting.

Addis Ababa and Khartoum already have various cooperation agreements at both state and regional levels which are based on mutual interest.

Every year, the two governments hold joint development and border commission meetings that are believed to have played a significant role in further fostering relations between the two countries.

Joint cooperation activities in recent years have also witnessed a stronger partnership between the countries in many areas.

The two neighbours have signed a number of cooperation agreements on political, socio-economic and security matters, as well as on many other issues of common concern.

Authorities in both countries say joint cooperation and security measures in adjacent regions of Ethiopia and Sudan have succeeded in ensuring peace and security along the border.

The countries have also managed to control cross-border attacks by anti-peace elements in their respective nations.

    There is nothing a threat for the people of Ethiopia on the bourder areas with Sudan unless the TPLF/Woyane aparthide regime paves the way to the handover of our land to Sudan in disguise of this summit which lacks genuine deligation of our nation & it only serves to meet the desire of TPLF targeting a distruction of Ethiopia.What ever time it takes both TPLF & Sudan will be punished by Ethiopians
