Mogadishu (SD) – The federal government of Somalia appears to have responded to a statement from the US embassy in Mogadishu regarding the reform of Somalia’s security sector.
A statement from the US embassy on Twitter said:
President Farmajo’s national security adviser Abdi Said Ali, said it was important to work with government agencies to reform the country’s security sector.
“I am grateful for the continued support of the international community, which I believe will contribute to the country’s progress,” he said in a statement.
He added: “Somali institutions must be consulted and actively involved in the establishment and implementation of security reforms.”
The statement from the US embassy is believed to be in response to the suspension of the Commander of the Somali National Army, General Ismail Abdimalik.
The Somali federal government has for several times warned strongly against any political intervention in the country’s internal affairs.
