Djibouti (SD) – The government of Djibouti defended its role in IGAD’s fact-finding mission report on the dispute between the governments of Somalia and Kenya.
A statement from the Djiboutian foreign ministry said the decision by the Djiboutian fact-finding commission was “impartial”.
“The commission’s work was carried out with permission from Kenya and Somalia earlier this month during the commission’s visit to both countries,” the statement said.
The statement also indicated that Djibouti has good relations with both Kenya and Somalia and wants a lasting solution to the conflict between the two countries.
The Djibouti government said that the decision of the commission was before the heads of state of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) as to assist in resolving the dispute between the two countries.
However, the Somali government opposed the commission’s decision and said it was in favor of the Kenyan government.
