Somalia and Kenya Collaborate to Promote Regional Security

Does the U.S. agree with the Somali President who said Monday that he opposed Kenya’s week-old military assault against Islamists in the south of his country?

Somali President Shariff Sheikh Ahmed today reiterated that Somalia and Kenya collaborate to promote regional security.

“We understand that the Government of Kenya and the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia are in contact regarding their continued efforts to promote regional security.” -President Shariff Sheikh Ahmed

He said that the Prime Minister Abdiweli’s office issued a press statement on 27th of October, reiterating the common stand that Somalia and Kenya have taken against al-Shabaab and their intent to continue to collaborate in their efforts to address the conflict in Somalia as originally articulated in their joint communique of October 18.
