UN hails restoration of Somalia-Kenya diplomatic ties
The United Nations on Friday welcomed the restoration of the diplomatic ties between Somalia and Kenya.
”We welcome the announcements from Somalia and Kenya regarding the efforts underway towards restoring diplomatic relations. We recognize the role played by the State of Qatar in this regard,” United Nations spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said.
”We hope the announcements will lead to the full restoration of friendly relations between Kenya and Somalia, which are crucial for stability and cooperation in the region,”
Somalia restored diplomatic relations with neighbouring Kenya after a five-month-long standoff.
Somalia has also accused Kenya of training and arming a local militia to attack its forces on the border and destabilize the nation, an accusation Kenya denies.
