STORYLINE
At a press conference in Nairobi today (10 jUL), UN chief António Guterres said to “prevent violent extremism in Africa and to fight effectively terrorism in Africa is not only a matter of interest for the Africans, it's a matter of global security.”

Guterres was speaking following his participation in a high-level regional conference on counter-terrorism in the Kenyan capital. He told reporters that preventing terrorism from happening was as important as fighting it, adding that the first prevention is to end conflicts. He said arms from Libya have gone everywhere and have been a factor of terrorism in different parts of the continent.

The UN chief noted that we need to mobilize much more international support for African development. He stressed, “We need a fair globalization. We need a globalization with opportunities for all. We need to make sure that nobody is left behind, that nobody feels discriminated or abandoned.” Guterres underscored the need to create the conditions for youth to fully participate in their societies adding that job creation is an absolute priority.

The Secretary-General expressed his belief that it is the UN’s obligation “to raise awareness in the international community and to make the international community understand that to prevent violent extremism in Africa and to fight effectively terrorism in Africa is not only a matter of interest for the Africans, it's a matter of global security.” He added, “Terrorists today travel everywhere. Foreign fighters go everywhere. Preserving peace and security in Africa is the best way to preserve peace and security in the world.”
