Three Somali state members boycott to meet in Mogadishu
MOGADISHU, Somalia — Somali state members denied to accept an urgent call offered by country’s president Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed.
Mr. Mohamed invited state members to attend National Security Council Meeting which was scheduled to hold 19th April in Mogadishu.
The state members were expecting to arrive in Somali capital Mogadishu, but none of them landed in the capital.
This becomes another setback for Somalia.
It is unclear why the state members denied to join in the National Security Council Meeting as scheduled.
The state members remained unavailable to comment on the call offered their president of Somalia.
The state leaders paid separate visits to Kenya and UAE, instead of being hosted in Mogadishu.
Galmudug state president Ahmed Dualle Gelle has met with the EU’s envoy for Somalia, Fulgencio Garido-Ruiz in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
The meeting was discussed several issues related to Galmudug.
He also held a series of meetings with diplomats in Kenya and met with the UK’s ambassador to Somalia later on Saturday.
The Presidents of Jubbaland and Puntland states, Ahmed Madobe and Said Abdullahi Deni respectively met with members of the international community in Kenya.
These meetings were focused on maintaining consistent support from agencies and donors to Galmudug, Jubbaland and Puntland states in Somalia.
