Togo will host a 2-day conference on anti-terrorism this week

(Togo First) - Starting tomorrow, Lomé will host a two-day parliamentary conference on the fight against terrorism and violent extremism. During the meeting, participants will explore possibilities for cooperation between parliamentarians, youth NGOs, and civil society organizations (CSOs), in line with the event’s theme.

There will be over 250 participants including presidents of national assemblies, representatives of African parliaments, youth NGOs, CSOs, and representatives from UN agencies, and other international organizations.

They will discuss recommendations of the working group set up after Doha’s 2022 conference on emerging threats in Africa.

It should be noted that since November 2021 Togo’s northern region has been dealing with terrorist attacks, a situation that the government takes seriously. 

Tomorrow’s event should be backed by the African Parliamentary Union, the G5 Sahel Inter-Parliamentary Committee, and the Shura Council of the State of Qatar.
