MOGADISHU, Somalia – A high level delegation led by Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed arrived in Egypt’s capital Cairo.
Mr. Mohamed departed from Mogadishu capital to Cairo after receiving an official invitation by his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
President Mohamed and his delegation were warmly welcomed Somali FM and other Egyptian senior officials at Cairo International Airport.
He expected to attend a summit which will be discussed on latest Sudan and Libya situations.
