International Partners Welcome State-Building Efforts and Call for Continued Progress
International partners* welcome efforts by Somalia’s leaders to advance priorities on peacebuilding and state-building, including through the regular meetings of the National Consultative Council. In particular, we welcome the renewed focus on the constitutional review process, federal resource-and power-sharing, and reconciliation, all of which are crucial to ensuring Somalia’s long-term stability. We call on all stakeholders to engage constructively in these efforts, and to resolve any differences through dialogue and consultation.
We remain committed to supporting Somalia in achieving its state-building priorities; the foundation for an inclusive, prosperous and peaceful Somalia.
