Somalia’s Int’l partners call for inclusive reconciliation in Galmudug
MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somalia’s international partners say they welcome the ongoing Galmudug Reconciliation Conference convened in Dhusamareb city, Garowe Online reports.
The foreign diplomatic missions in Mogadishu released a joint statement on Saturday, underscoring the importance of an inclusive reconciliation process as an essential step towards the holding of Galmudug elections.
“We welcome the commitment demonstrated by all stakeholders to an inclusive reconciliation process and commend the efforts of the Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire,” read the statement in part.
The reconciliation meeting brings together Galmudug state and clan elders to iron out the current differences ahead of much-delayed elections in the Somali Federal State.
“We express our hope that the dialogue is fruitful, and that the Conference lays the foundation for a unified and stable Galmudug state,” said Somalia’s International partners.
Galmudug state has been beset by an internal political crisis since its establishment 2014.
