Somalia hosts regional leaders for IGAD summit after 30 year wait
September 13, 2016
The summit will see leaders from Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, South Sudan, Somalia and Sudan hold deliberations on peace, development and the upcoming Somalia elections.
Security has been beefed up in the capital Mogadishu where the summit will take place, and authorities are hoping this will be testimonial to the advancements the country has made to restore peace and stability after years of war from Islamist terror group al-Shabaab.
“It is the first time Somalia hosts such a high-level summit in 30 years. We see it as a historic signal and message to the world that Somalia is coming back.” Somalia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Abdusalam Omer Hadliye said.
