“The Arab Parliament calls on Kenya to stop its hands on Somali territorial waters, which are an integral part of the Arab waters, and rejects its false pretensions to draw up a new, unfounded map while rejecting its threats to interfere in Somalia’s internal affairs,” read a tweet by the Somali Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The diplomatic standoff between Somalia and Kenya appears to be taking a turn for the worse. This is after the Arab Parliament cautioned the country against meddling with matters to do with Somalia. Parliament sessions that took place in the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo, Egypt, with each member state sending four members, Somalia, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia are among member States.
