Somali Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdirizak said in a speech to the United Nations Security Council this afternoon that an agreement had been reached on disputed elections.

Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, heads of regional administrations and the governor of Benadir region have been meeting at the Air Force base in Mogadishu since Saturday.
An agreement reached by the parties could pave the way for credible elections in Somalia, following the end of President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo’s term on February 8th.
