Nairobi (SD) – Somalia’s embassy in Nairobi will next Monday resume its operations barely six months after the diplomatic ties between Somalia and Kenya hit the bottom.
Speaking to the media, Somalia’s ambassador to Kenya, Somalia’s ambassador to Kenya Ahmed Nur Tarsan said embassy will resume business.
“I would like to inform the Somali community that on Monday the embassy will resume its services,” ambassador Tarsan said.
The development comes three days after Kenyan ambassador to Somalia, Lucas Tumbo and Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble discussed the need to deepen bilateral relations between the two East African nations, which recently restored ties after a months-long dispute.
“The PM and the Ambassador discussed the need to deepen bilateral relations and enhance cooperation,” said the office of the Somali prime minister in a brief statement after the meeting this week.
The two countries announced resumption of relations mid last month after a freeze last November which led to closure of the respective embassies.
Somalia expelled Kenya’s ambassador to Somalia General Lucas Tumbo in November 2020 and the subsequently ordered the closure of the embassy and exit off staff by mid-December.
The horn of Africa nation was accusing Kenya of interfering its internal affairs, a claim dismissed by the East Africa nation.
