Press Releases

International partners (United Nations, African Union, European Union, Intergovernmental Authority on Development, Ethiopia, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States) are closely following the developments in Galmudug.

International partners were encouraged by the positive steps taken by the parties in the past few weeks to open dialogue aimed at achieving reconciliation, holding inclusive elections and establishing a broad-based administration which is critical for the legitimacy, improved security and viability of Galmudug State.

International partners are disappointed to learn that the dialogue has stalled. International partners urge all parties to continue the dialogue in good faith and pursue all opportunities to achieve reconciliation and prioritize the establishment of an inclusive administration in Galmudug.

The partners call on all parties to avoid any actions that could undermine reconciliation efforts, and they stand ready to facilitate the reconciliation process if all parties agree.
