Somali government opposes some African Security Council resolutions

Mogadishu- ( At a recent press conference, Minister of Information of the Somali Federal Government Osman Abukar Dubbe addressed the call from the Security Council and the African Union.

Minister Dubbe said in a press conference that they were previously skeptical of the conference, which was chaired by the government in Djibouti and edited by the Kenyan government.

However, the information minister said the government welcomed the appointment of a special envoy to Somalia by the African Union.

“The governments of Kenya and Djibouti have put a lot of effort into the conference’s decisions, but I am surprised that Djibouti’s government is in conflict with the Kenyan government,” Dubbe said.

“Djibouti’s government continues to do what we warned four years ago, and Djibouti’s seat on the Security Council was right for Somalia, but Djibouti accepted it in a fraternal way,” Dubbe said.
The Minister of Information said that the Council condemned Parliament’s decision.

“No organization can criticize an independent country, it is illegal and the Somali government does not welcome criticism of the parliament,” he said.

The minister also said he did not welcome the fact that AMISOM troops were monitoring the movements of Somali forces.

“This is a strange thing and it is illegal. It is clearly contrary to AMISOM’s mandate under UN Security Council Resolution 2568,” he added.
