The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) and Federal Government of Somalia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enhance cooperation on Puntland state police training and countering terrorism.

The Memorandum of Understanding will provide up to $1 million to expand INL’s current police and counter terrorism assistance programs in Somalia to benefit Puntland regional State police.
