1 min read

Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, who chaired the weekly Cabinet meeting yesterday, said it was “impossible” for Somalia to be at war with countries that it share many interests with.

He said his government was pursuing a foreign policy based on the interests of the Somali people, while recently restoring relations between Somalia and the United Arab Emirates.

“We are committed to improving our relations with the world, especially with countries with which we have trade, education and travel, always taking into account the interests of the Somali people,” he said.

“As you know, it is not possible for us to be meaninglessly at conflict with our brotherly countries, which spend millions of dollars every year, as well as a major source of revenue for our foreign trade.”

He also stated that as a government, there is no country that they are targeting, and that they have good relations with anyone who is in the interest of the Somali people and the country.

Prime Minister Roble’s statement comes as the Somali government recently apologized for the April 2018 incident in which the Somali government confiscated money from UAE in Aden Adde International Airport.

The prime minister promised the UAE government that the money would be handed over to the government as soon as possible, despite strong opposition from the outgoing president.
