New York, 14.03.2020- Lana - New Washington delegate to the United Nations, Ambassador Kelly Kraft, said parts of Africa face a growing terrorist threat from groups targeting innocent civilians, kidnapping foreigners and undermining legitimate governments. She added in a tweet through her official account on the social networking site "Twitter": "The global community must work together to address this threat and eliminate the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism." In last November, Kraft said support for the African Union would be crucial to stem the illegal flow of arms in Libya. It called for the African Union to strictly adhere to the United Nations principles on financing, burden-sharing and the standards of peacekeeping operations. =Lana=
