Brundi is our true brothers who have given their blood to bring peace and stability in Somalia Hassan Sheikh Mohamud today welcomed the new Burundian
Ambassador to Somalia and said, “The people of Burundi are our true brothers who
have given their blood to bring peace and stability in Somalia.”

His Excellency Joseph Nkununziza, presented his credentials to the President in
Villa Somalia, Mogadishu. Accompanied by Somalia’s Foreign Minister, His Excellency
Abdirahman Duale Baileh, the Ambassador pledged his country’s continued support to
the ongoing efforts to stabilize Somalia. Ambassador Nkununziza said “We Burundians
understand the importance of supporting a brother when he needs it most and that is
why our soldiers are in Somalia. Somalia deserves better and we urge the
international community to provide timely resources to help the government to build
its institutions in order to bring peace and stability. Burundi will increase its
support to the government and the people of Somalia.”

The President said: “We are enormously appreciative of Burundi’s support in
returning security to Somalia. Burundian soldiers are on the frontlines, helping
defeat Al-Shabaab as part of AMISOM. On a daily basis our own soldiers of the SNA,
with the support of AMISOM, are liberating town after town. Together, we aim to
eliminate the threat posed by Al-Shabaab. That threat exists not only here in
Somalia but elsewhere, in other countries. We look forward to continuing to work
together in pursuit of our common interests.”

“Burundi is a true brother and we greatly value the sacrifices that they are making
here in Somalia. We are also grateful for their support in the training of our
soldiers, who are rapidly becoming a professional, capable force. Soon Somali
soldiers will be able to provide peace and stability throughout the country and we
will take full control of the security of our country. That will only be possible
with the assistance of our brother nations like Burundi.”

The Ambassador conveyed a personal message from President of Burundi, H.E. Pierre
Nkurunziza, expressing his commitment to strengthening bilateral relations. He
concluded his visit with a joint press conference with the Somali Foreign Minister.
