Angolan official stresses need for tight border control
font size    

Angolan Home Minister Osvaldo Serra Van-Dunem has advocated the need to reinforce the control of land borders, at the southern Africa level, because its big extension has rendered favorable conditions for countless cross-border crimes.

The minister was speaking at the opening ceremony of the Tenth Annual Meeting of the Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Cooperation Organization (SARPCCO), taking place on Monday in Luanda, destined to outline joint strategies to fight criminal activities in southern African countries.

"The vulnerability of our borders, due to its extension, renders favorable conditions for the practice of cross-border crimes, whose amplitude sometimes is unexpected with traumatic consequences," he said.

Van-Dunem stressed the necessity to deepen the police cooperation, aimed at taking common measures with the objective to prevent and combat criminal activities in the respective countries.

The historical ties that unite SARPCCO member countries should constitute the main factor for the conjugation of efforts "aimed at outlining strategies that will allow to obtain satisfactory results in this hard task of fighting crimes," he said.
