Tanzania and Israel yesterday agreed to intensify their collaborations in key defense and security matters, particularly in troops training, cyber and inter-territorial security as well as improved military technology.
Israel and Tanzania have entered into a Military Training and Intelligence Gathering-Sharing agreement. The pact is aimed at combating the growing threat of jihadists in the ‘Geopolitically Cold’ East African country.
The Minister for Defence and National Security, Dr. Hussein Mwinyi and his Israel counterpart Avigdor Liberman signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the two countries to share vital intelligence information to weed out all forms of security threats.
Israel said the just signed agreement would help the two countries to share intelligence information on areas of security and expertise in technological based security. Israel is among the countries in the world that boast of modern defense and security technology.
