“As we have been doing it, we need to consolidate our regional cooperation, especially in areas of peace and security, fighting of terrorism, transboundary crimes, cooperation in the management, development and utilization of shared natural resources, protection of the impacts of climate change and other emerging global issues of common interest to both of us,” Amb. Fisseha underscored.
