The delegation’s visit aims to foster stronger bilateral ties and address pressing issues concerning Somalia’s security, political landscape, and humanitarian situation.
The Somali Prime Minister, accompanied by a distinguished entourage, was warmly received upon their arrival at Doha International Airport. Greeting them were esteemed dignitaries, including Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulaziz bin Saleh Al Khulaifi, the Minister of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Abdullah bin Salem Al Nuaimi, the Ambassador of the State of Qatar to Somalia, and Run Said Kurshel, Charge d’Affairs at the Somali Embassy in Qatar.
The primary focus of Prime Minister Barre’s visit revolves around holding constructive discussions with Qatari officials regarding the prevailing situation in Somalia. Of particular concern are matters pertaining to security, political stability, and the dire humanitarian conditions faced by the Somali people.
