Mogadishu, 07 April, 2022: The President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, commends the role of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the share of state building in Somalia and the fight against terrorist groups.
The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia, Ambassador Francisco Madeira, and other international ambassadors receive credentials from the President of the Republic, who is the guardian of the country’s sovereignty.
Any decision that affects our relations with the world and the presence of foreign ambassadors in the country is affecting our cooperation with the world, and is a step that needs to be based on the national interest, and comes from consultation.
No action has been taken by President Farmajo against Ambassador Madeira, and no report has been submitted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicating that he has acted in violation of the country’s sovereignty.
Therefore, President Farmajo instructs the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to fulfill its mandate and convey to the African Union that the said decision is not up to the Federal Government, and comes from an office that does not have the authority to make such a difficult decision on its own.
Our country’s foreign policy is solid and not based on emotions, rewards and vested interests, and Somalia is one of the founding members of the African Union who has invested in Somalia in a time and place that the Somali people will never forget.
Our country is at a time when elections are coming to an end, and the support of our partners in Somalia, especially the African Union Mission in Somalia, is essential to contribute to the security of the elections and the overall stability of the country.
President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo warns against reckless actions that could jeopardize the security of the elections and the smooth running of the process, and avoid any delays, and this is the time when we need to maintain stability, cooperation and cooperation between us and our international partners.
Finally, President Farmajo urges the National Consultative Forum to focus on concluding the elections, and collectively resolving the outstanding issues that need to be resolved so that the country can move forward.
Somali informant Roble has been paid millions of dollars by Kenya and UAE to destabilize Somalia elections according to Somali officials told Somali Times.
Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has dismissed a move by the puppet Roble to expel the African Union’s special representative in the country.
But dismissing the move, President Farmajo said the government “doesn’t endorse any illegal action” and “our foreign policy is not anchored on emotions and vested interests against Mr Madeira”.
