Somalia needs to move forward together, says president
Villa Somalia said in a statement Weber and the president discussed a range of issues, including boosting the relations between Somalia and the EU as the Horn of Africa is recovering from a long conflict.
The EU in its statement expressed “its deep appreciation to ATMIS’s (the AU Transition Mission in Somalia) troop and police-contributing countries for their continued support in the fight against terror.”
Hours after the airport attack, two suicide bombings hit Beledweyne, the second constituency of HirShabelle state in central Somalia, which left at least 48 people, including MP Amina Mohamed dead.
Somalia has not made its position clear but if it is forced to pick sides between the warring sides, it will have to pick Ukraine, bowing to the pressure by the West as the country remains reliant on foreign aid.
The outgoing president Farmajo was accused of being the main obstacle to the country's elections as he is seeking to hijack the process.
