The Kenyan government has announced that it has reopened flights to Somalia, following a long-standing embargo, exacerbating strained relations between neighboring Somalia and Kenya. An official statement from the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that flights from Somalia to Kenya have been reopened today.

The statement also said that the move would lead to the resumption of bilateral relations in the form of trade and neighborly cooperation.

The letter states that only travelers are required to have a certificate certifying that they do not have the coronavirus. Kenya’s previous ban due to the dispute between the two countries has affected flights to Mogadishu and Nairobi.

There has been no word yet from the Somali federal government in Kenya’s decision to reopen flights to Somalia.
