Somalia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Bilal Mohamed Osman.
Somalia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Bilal Mohamed Osman has said that the Kenyan government has no interest in the deteriorating relations with Somalia.
The state minister said the Somali government is working to improve relations between the two countries. But, he made it clear that if Kenya refuses to do so, Somalia will be defending its seas.
“I believe that the people and the government of Kenya know that they have no interest in the deterioration of relations between the two countries. We will work for the better of the two countries, but if they reject the peace process, the Somali government will stand and is responsible for defending its people, its country, its religion and its waters, ”said Somalia’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Bilal Mohamed Osman.
The statement came as the Kenyan government opposed the decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to rule in Somalia.
Corrupt Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has called on the international community to work with Somalia to reach an agreement on maritime issues.
