Kenyan Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Amina Mohamed said here Saturday that the Commonwealth member states can enhance cooperation in fighting terrorism by strengthening training and intelligence sharing.

"Terrorism is a global issue. Terrorist attacks are happening everywhere from Boston to Paris to London to Pakistan. The Commonwealth member states should intensify cooperation on counterinsurgency training, information and intelligence exchanges, " Mohamed said at a press conference held on the sidelines of the ongoing Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

She added that member states should also bind together to ask for resources to fight terrorism.

The Commonwealth leaders' summit, which is held every two years, will run through Sunday, and it is the first time an Asian country hosts the summit in 24 years.
