Copenhagen, Denmark (HAN) November 18, 2014 – Public diplomacy and Regional Security and safety news. The Somali Foreign minister urge UN Security Council to limit ongoing political crisis in Mogadishu.
More than two dozen federal Somali ministers with seventeen deputy ministers lined up in Mogadishu Tuesday to urge the often-deadlocked ongoing political crisis to avoid using personal power of the Prime minister in matters that involve internal affaires of Somalia.
“We cannot stay paralyzed,” Somali president told the international community gathering in Denmark.
According to United Nations representative in Somalia, Nicholas Kay, has met with Somali leaders in Mogadishu to discuss the ongoing political crisis days ahead of the first high-level meeting held in Copenhagen to review the embattled nation’s progress to political reconciliation.
Nicholas Kay urged the Somali leaders to find a political solution that would allow the Federal Government to implement the Vision 2016 plan for Somalia’s political transformation in a timely manner.
The five permanent members of the Security Council has veto power over any matter voted upon by the Security Council, including the current regional security matters in Somalia.
British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant expressed support for Djibouti’s proposal to limit the often political deadlocked, saying, “The UK is appalled by its recent power struggle abuse at the expense of millions of suffering Somali civilians.”
The Security Council project of UNSOM, established by the UN Security Council in June of 2013, is mandated to support the Federal Government of Somalia with its peace and state building agenda, including the federalism process, review of the provisional constitution and elections in 2016 throughout Somalia and Somaliland regions.
The United Nations’ most powerful body has faced strong criticism as several resolutions on Somalia’s devastating civil war have been blocked by often-deadlocked ongoing political crisis by IGAD member States and it’s UK, USA and Russian allies.
