Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble today received the Ambassadors of the 15 member states of the African Union Peace and Security Council led by Ambassador Mohamed Gad.

The two sides discussed the role of AMISOM peacekeepers in Somalia and the strengthening of cooperation between the Federal Government of Somalia and the African Union.

Members of the African Union Delegation who arrived in Mogadishu yesterday have previously met with Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud, to discuss the future of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

A delegation from the African Union Peace and Security Council, who are on a three-day visit to Somalia, met this morning with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Government of Somalia Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed the future of AMISOM in 2021.

Somali Foreign Minister Mohamed Abdirizak briefed the African Union delegation on the security situation in Somalia and AMISOM’s plans for Somalia.

Members of the delegation are also expected to meet with outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and other officials.

This comes after a proposal by the commision for a African Union joint mission with the United Nation was rejected by the Somali government, who feel that the time has come for Somali troops to take full control of the security in the country. 

The Somali givernment has recently sacked the African union deputy chief Simon Mulongo and gave him a week to leave the country after he was accused of interfering with the national sovereignty of the country amongst other accusations.
