Kenya responds to Somali government’s call for reopening of embassies1 min read
The Kenyan government has said it will reopen its embassy in Mogadishu as soon as possible.
A statement from the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs also called on the Somali Ambassador to Kenya to return to Nairobi and resume his duties.
The Somali government recently announced the resumption of diplomatic relations with Kenya, which had been disabled for several months.
The move comes as Kenya reopens civilian flights to Somalia that were suspended for several weeks.
Relations between the two countries, which have been strained for some time, now appear to be improving, with reports that a delegation from the Somali Ministry of Foreign Affairs has arrived in Nairobi today.
Although diplomatic relations between Somalia and Kenya have returned, it is believed that resolving the dispute between the two countries will not end there, with the Federal Government of Somalia repeatedly accusing Kenya of meddling in Somalia’s internal affairs.
