UN envoys calls for good relations between federal and state leaders

UN envoy in Somalia has called on Somali federal and state leaders to cement their relations.

During a meeting with South-west leader Abdiaziz Hassan Mohamed, Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Somalia, James Swan emphasized the importance of “good relations” between the Federal Member States and the Federal Government.

“I don’t want to leave this occasion without underscoring a message that I have delivered in every one of my visits, and that is the message on the need for good relations between federal member states like South West State and the federal government,” he said.

“This kind of relationship between the center and the FMSs [Federal Member States] is absolutely vital for delivering services and good government to the Somali people and it’s a message I have conveyed in Mogadishu and in all the FMSs that I have visited,” he added.

On his part, Mohamed said their discussions focused on security, humanitarian assistance and the political situation in the region.

“We had constructive discussions with the Special Representative James Swan,” Laftagareen said.
He said UN envoy expressed the UN’s commitment to continue the support of the UN to the region.

During the visit of Baidoa, he was accompanied to Baidoa by senior officials from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UNMAS –Takeshi Moriyama, Dyane Epstein and Qurat-Ul-Ain Sadozai, respectively.

Mr. Swan has been visiting Somalia’s Federal Member States since taking up his post in late June.
Yesterday’s visit follows trips to Puntland, Jubaland and Hirshabelle.
