IGAD heads of state’s summit to be held in somalia
Somalia’s foreign ministry has announced that IGAD summit will be held in Mogadishu next week (10th September, 2016).
The ministry official said at a press conference today that the heads of states of Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, and Ethiopia are expected to attend the planned IGAD meeting in Mogadishu.
The meeting will be the first of IGAD heads of states to be held in Somali capital Mogadishu, in more than twenty years due to the conflict and lawlessness of the country.
In January, 2015, foreign ministers from seven countries in IGAD, have met in the Somali capital for the first time in early 25 years.
