Mozambique and Tanzania have just signed two cooperation agreements in Maputo with a focus on combating terrorism and fighting crime.
Mozambique is currently fighting Islamist militants in the gas-rich northern Cabo Delgado region of the country.
According to BBC, the agreements were signed as part of a four-day official visit that of Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan is making to Mozambique.
In addition to fighting jihadists, President Filipe Nyusi said the two countries were currently focused on the exploitation of hydrocarbons which form the building blocks of vital energy sources like coal and gas.
President Samia also highlighted the need for both countries to strengthen security because of the extensive common border they share.
