The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Louise Mushikiwabo has said that countries need to collaborate in information sharing among security personnel levels to overcome different forms of potential insecurity challenges.

Mushikiwabo made the remarks as she closed discussions of 31 senior police officers from 10 African countries at the police headquarters, Kacyiru, where much emphasis was directed towards security, peace and justice, attended by police officers, military officers and lawyers.

Mushikiwabo said that there is no strategic way of attaining sustainable peace to overcome crimes including terrorism among others other than such discussions organized by the Rwanda’s Police Academy.

“Peace and Security problems in the 21st century are getting complicated.This means that we must always be ready in anyway. We must be ready to resist problems that may arise or never thought about before,” she said.

The discussions also talked on strategies of preventing various crimes as a potential milestone towards sustainable peace, which is believed to be a powerful investment in preventing people from committing crimes or cooperating with criminals.

“I hope that introducing senior police officers from 10 countries in such courses is crucial.These are times of cooperation. Big, average and small countries have duties of cooperating with others particularly in security,” she said.

Mushikiwabo said that the world must not relent in ensuring security.

“It has been realized that the absence of security, absence of cooperation between countries, absence of collaboration between security institutions would make it impossible to realize progress of our countries. Most of the time life can be difficult,” she said.

The head of police academy, CP Felix Namuhoranye said that participants were equipped with much knowledge during the trainings related to detecting possible causes of insecurity.

The Minister of Defense, Gen James Kabarebe, and IGP Gasana Emmanuel are among participants who addressed delegates.
