Somali Prime Minister Hamza Abdi Barre has commended the government of Djibouti for providing assistance to Mogadishu, struck by double car bomb attacks last Saturday.
The Premier received a delegation of Medical Staff sent by the Government of Djibouti to assist victims of the attack near the offices of the Federal Ministry of Education.
Meeting the team, Hamza Barre pointed out that this aid and support will promote the deep relationship between the two countries, and to strengthen the strong pillars of culture and brotherhood between the two peoples.
Prime Minister Hamza Abdi Barre on Sunday urged the Doctors from Djibouti to provide quality services for the victims of the bomb attack, while assuring them that all conditions are created so that they can comply with their important mission.
The Djibouti government said it is committed to supporting the government and the Somali people in this critical time, dealing with the disaster.
The Ministry of Health dispatched medical aid and a team of doctors to Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, where the local hospital is coping with more than 140 wounds admitted.
The successive Al-Shabaab blasts killed more than 128 people and injured over 300 people, all civilians who lost their lives in the attack targeting the ministry of education in the busy area.
Djibouti reaffirmed that the deployment of doctors constitutes a transcendental element in the process of strengthening bilateral relations between Somalia and Djibouti.
The group of specialists reiterated their commitment to fulfilling their task and consequently contribute to improving the health conditions of the victims of the attack.
Djibouti is a close sisterly country that has been helping Somalia since 2000 when it hosted a peace conference in Arta city that produced the first transitional government since the collapse of the military regime in 1991.
Turkey, a key partner in Somalia is also expected to airlift some of the critically wounded people to Istanbul for advanced medical treatment, according to the Minister of Health Ali Haji.
