NAIROBI， Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan police said on Wednesday they have stepped up surveillance on suspected Al-Shabaab activities across the border and their attempts to infiltrate the country to mount terror attacks.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett said security officers have witnessed and repulsed sporadic attempted terror attacks in the past month in areas such as Mandera and Wajir counties in northeast Kenya bordering Somalia.
""We are also closely monitoring the developing situation in Somalia that has seen a steady build-up of suspected Al-Shabaab fighters in the regions bordering Kenya，"" Boinnet said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
He said the militants' objective is to attack security installations and medical facilities along the border in an effort to loot arms and ammunition， drugs and other medical supplies.
Kenya blames Al-Shabaab for increased terror attacks and fears its tourist and business economy will be destroyed if it allows the insurgents to go on unchallenged.
The government also announced it is stepping up its naval patrols in the Indian Ocean in order to prevent militants coming into the country via the open waters.
Boinnet said counter-terrorism measures have led to sustainability of programs， projects， initiatives and reforms aimed at addressing the underlying factors and conditions that breed terrorism， radicalism and other criminal activities.
""The threat posed by the Al-Shabaab and other similar terror groups operating in the region remain our main focus and as such the police will not relent till the groups are totally neutralized，"" Boinnet said.
He said security agencies are well aware of Al-Shabaab operational plans of transporting militants in trucks to the common border and then infiltrate on foot into the country to carry out attacks.
""As such we call upon all citizens， more so， communities who reside within these border regions to be on the lookout for such individuals and to promptly inform the security agencies nearby，"" he said.

UNITED NATIONS， Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese envoy on Monday called on the Security Council to make continued efforts to "speak with one voice" to the outside world and to avoid the politicalization of the humanitarian issue in Syria.
Liu Jieyi， China's permanent representative to the UN， made the appeal after the 15-nation council voted on a draft resolution that calls for a seven-day humanitarian truce in Syria's Aleppo.
The Security Council failed to adopt the resolution as Russia and China vetoed it. Eleven council members voted in favor， Venezuela voted against and Angola abstained.
Liu said the draft resolution just voted on by the Security Council contains concrete measures for the easing of the humanitarian situation in Syria.
"Council members...have made great efforts to seek consensus，" said Liu. "These efforts could have continued so that the Security Council can speak with one voice to the outside world and avoid the politicalization of the humanitarian issue."
Liu said action on the draft resolution while there are still serious differences is not conducive to the diplomatic efforts by the countries concerned nor is helpful to the improvement of the situation in Syria.
"The Security Council should maintain unity on the question of Syria， speak with one voice and work together to play a constructive role for an early political settlement of the question of Syria，" he added.
Recently， the conflict in Syria has kept escalating， causing serious worsening of the humanitarian situation in some areas and plunging the Syrian people into deep sufferings.
"China expresses its deep concern over the situation in Syria and feels for the Syrian people in the sufferings in the conflict，" said Liu.
He called on the international community to work together to push the Syrian issue back to the track of seeking a solution through peaceful negotiations and dialogue and find a fundamental way out of the conflict as soon as possible.
"Action by the Security Council on the question of Syria should be conducive to the work of the four tracks of resumption of ceasefire， political peace talks， cooperation in counter-terrorism and humanitarian relief，" he added.
Before the vote， Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said to the council that putting the draft resolution into vote violates the Security Council's working procedure since under the council's rule， the document should have been voted on Tuesday morning.
Churkin said the council needs more time to take into account new circumstances in Syria and to reach consensus on a resolution that can contribute to improving humanitarian in Syria， particularly in Aleppo.
