People's Daily Online -- Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi on Monday held talks with a delegation led by General Bryan Brown, head of US Special Operations Command, on military and security cooperation between Ethiopia and the United States.
Meles and Brown held discussion particularly on security situations in eastern African countries and other related issues, said a senior government official who attended the discussion.
The discussion stressed the need of strengthening cooperations between the two countries in fighting terrorism, said the official.
The two sides also stressed the need to foster military and security cooperations which the two countries have long established, he said.
Ethiopia has been central to US anti-terrorism efforts in the Horn of Africa on both the security and fiscal fronts. It has stepped up its border control efforts and helped the US freeze financial assets of suspected terrorists.
The United States was providing military logistics to Ethiopia in addition to the training of its military officers.
