As Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman recently stated, “Now is the best time, the best chance in a quarter century for [Somalis] to realize the promise that accompanied their nation’s independence. In that quest, the United States is right where it should be: on Somalia’s side. And as we support the country’s progress, our strategy is centered on three key elements: security, governance, and development.” The Government of the United States reaffirms its commitment to support the people of Somalia and the Federal Government of Somalia as they work to stabilize and govern the country. We look forward to working as close partners for the benefit of Somalia and the region.
