UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Japan’s foreign minister says his country will spend $120 million to strengthen counter-terrorism efforts in Africa.

Fumio Kishida told the United Nations Security Council on Thursday that the money would be used to strengthen information and data collection in Africa, improve border controls with cutting-edge technology and improve criminal justice enforcement among other things.

The money will also be used for human resource development, training some 30,000 people between 2016 and 2018. He did not provide more specifics on the type of training.

Kishida made his remarks at meeting of Security Council discussing peacebuilding in Africa.
