DAR ES SALAAM, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said on Saturday that the country is on full alert against acts of terrorism.
Adjourning a two-week parliamentary session in the capital Dodoma, Majaliwa said security organs in the country are vigilant all the time to ensure that terrorism acts do not happen.
"All people entering the country are thoroughly scrutinized to make sure that they meet all the security standards," he told the House.
Majaliwa said Tanzania will continue to collaborate with all countries in the East African Community (EAC) and the international community in the war against terrorism.
On Feb. 2, Rwandan President Paul Kagame urged EAC partner states to join hands in fighting terrorism.
Kagame, who took over as the new chairman of the EAC, said terrorism is an emerging challenge in the region that must be tamed by all means.
"We have to work together to fight terrorism," he told the 20th summit of the regional body in Tanzania's northern city of Arusha.
