International partners welcome results of Somalia’s National Security Council meeting

Mogadishu, Somalia (PANA) – International partners supporting Somalia on Thursday welcomed what they described as “the significant outcomes” of the June 3-5 National Security Council meeting in Baidoa, capital of South West State.

The United Nations, African Union, European Union, Inter-Governmental Authority on Development, Ethiopia, Italy, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States issued a joint statement in which they also commended the leaders of the Federal Government of Somalia, Federal Member States, Benadir region, and represented ministries for reaching key agreements on the Transition Plan.

The National Security Council meeting also agreed revenue sharing, and the electoral model for the 2020 one-person, one-vote elections. Somalia’s international partners have urged accelerated implementation of these agreements.

“Building consensus on these and other critical issues provide the basis for further progress, including the conclusion of the Constitutional review process and defining the Somali federal model, and set the stage for a constructive Somalia Partnership Forum, which the Federal Government of Somalia, the European Union and Sweden will co-host in Brussels on 25 and 26 June.

“As Somalia enters a new phase in its relations with international financial institutions, its partners encourage Somalia’s leaders to continue working in the spirit of unity,” said the statement.
