Somalia’s Minister of Information Osman Abukar Dubbe has warned ambassadors working in Somalia against violating Somalia’s sovereignty and statehood.

The minister pointed out that the statements issued by some foreign ambassadors are outside the scope of diplomatic norms, and confirmed that such practices are not acceptable to the Somali people and the government.

“We expect the international community to protect the sovereignty and unity of the international community. The Federal Republic of Somalia is a sovereign state, and its internal affairs are inviolable.

“There are ambassadors who send messages to the government and the people of Somalia that do not comply with international law and that violate the sovereignty of countries. Violation of the internal affairs of the Federal Republic of Somalia is an insurmountable red line,” said Minister Dubbe.

Minister Dubbe, meanwhile, called on State Presidents who have not attended the Conference for the past three days to join and take on the national role and responsibility of advancing the country’s democratic process.

Somali Minister of Information Osman Abukar Dubbe says Somalia is not a colony owned by an empire or country.
