|NAIROBI Nike Air Force 1 High Supreme SP Men's Red White Outlet , Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- An East Africa's bloc on Wednesday expressed its commitment to support all international efforts geared towards preventing and countering violent extremism which is a threat to global peace and security.
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Executive Secretary, Mahboub Maalim welcomed the UN Secretary-General's Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism, an initiative to support countries to prevent and respond to the growth of violent extremism through a development lens.
"Violent extremism offers a conducive environment for the spread of terrorism," Maalim said in a statement released in Nairobi.
"It is therefore critical that the international community collectively engages in addressing the conditions to the spread of violent extremism as clearly state in the UN Plan of Action," he said.
The strategy appeals for concerted action by the international community, and provides more than 70 recommendations to Member States and the United Nations System to prevent the further spread of violent extremism.
Maalim said IGAD acknowledges that the Plan of Action offers a comprehensive roadmap to prevent violent extremism in all its forms and manifestations.
He added that successful implementation of the Plan of Action requires regional and international partnership Nike Air Force 1 High Women's X girl Red Outlet , cooperation and coordination.
"In this partnership, we must ensure that prevention and counter violent extremism strategies are undertaken within the principles of respect for human rights and rule of law," Maalim said.
Security experts admit that violent extremism has had a devastating social and economic impact across the continent.
Terrorist groups such as Islamist militant group, Al-Shabaab from Somalia and Nigeria's Boko Haram have forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes, increasing instability in the region.
Last week, Al-Shabaab fighters rammed a suicide car bomb at the Africa Union military base in Gedo region of southern Somalia to gain entry Discount Men's Nike Air Force 1 High Premium LE Black , killing unknown number of soldiers and injured several others.
According to UN estimates, since 2011, more than 21,000 people have been killed in over 4000 terrorist attacks in Africa.

The IGAD chief called on its Member States to revitalize their efforts in preventing and countering violent extremism and support the efforts of the international community and particularly the UN in this regard.

CANBERRA nike air force 1 high womens , July 3 (Xinhua) -- A "bad egg" who was caught trying to import three fertilized and potentially dangerous chicken eggs into Australia from Thailand was fined 660 Australian dollars (506 U.S. dollars) on Monday, in what has been described as a blatant flouting of Australia's strict biosecurity laws.
Canberra man Dang Thaow was apprehended at Sydney Airport in 2015 after customs officials suspected that he was concealing illegal items on his person after flying in from Thailand.
Officers conducted a search and found three eggs, later confirmed to be fertilized, in his underwear and pockets, something which Dr. Robyn Cleland, acting Head of Complaince at the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources nike air force 1 high mens sale , said was illegal due to the risks posed by foreign "exotic diseases."
"When it comes to biosecurity, it only takes one 'bad egg' to put us all at risk," Cleland said.
