Mogadishu: Deputy prime minister and minister of foreign affairs of the Somali federal government, Fowsiyo Yusuf Adam has returned home back today on Wednesday after she attended meeting in New York with united national Security Council on many issues about Somalia’

Mrs. Fowsiyo Yusuf Adam, deputy premier and minister of foreign affairs spoke to the reporters at Mogadishu international airport this morning saying she was from a long-journey from the united states of American, in particular New-York where she had taken part key debates on Somali affairs with united nations security council such lifting arms embargo on Somalia, building navy and the role of the African union peacekeeping forces in Somalia.

Mrs. Fowsiya said while representing the Somali federal government, she delivered speech at the UN Security Council headquarter in New York early this week adding it was very successful and fruitful regarding Somalia as she said the talks by UN security council will be discussing until March 7, the following month

Amisom’s mandate in Somalia is set to expire on March 7 and the Kenyan government had earlier requested the Council to extend it to allow for Somalia to stabilise.

“The Deputy Prime Minister argued that adding a new maritime component to the African Union Military mission in Somalia (Amisom) is costly and takes time to establish.”

She added saying, “Piracy, human trafficking and smuggling are important challenges,but are not linked to the mandate of Amisom.”
