Amisom mutates into transitional mission after AU Somalia meeting

African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) will be replaced by African Union Transitional Mission In Somalia (Atmis) according to an agreement between Somalia and AU following talks in Addis Ababa.

The agreement stated a transitional force to take over from African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) following talks between January 7 and 21.

The new security force, the two sides agreed, will take the form and shape of AMISOM but with a mandate to set the ground for the handover of security responsibilities to SSF by December 2023.

The timelines are based on the revised Somalia Transitional Plan which envisages the assumption of responsibilities by the end of next year.

The force commander will be selected from the country with the highest troop contribution.

“ATMIS shall have a clear command and control structure with empowered Force Headquarters having OPCOM (Operation Command) over the Forces to ensure strategic coherence with the implementation of the STP,” the agreement read in part.

The mission will also be ready to receive forces from other countries besides the current five-member states will be welcome.
