The Somali government should be supported to extend its administration across Somalia and continue to strengthen its governance capacity, Chinese UN envoy.
Wu Haitao, China’s deputy permanent representative to the United Nations on Wednesday said the overall situation in the Horn of African country remains relatively complicated, and peace and stability are facing challenges.
The ambassador urged all federal member states of Somalia to work and cooperated with the federal government to stabilize the country and establish peace.
“All federal member states should, in the spirit of cooperation, respect and safeguard the authority of the federal government and jointly realize national peace, stability and development,” he said.
The envoy underscored that the world should continue to help Somalia strengthen its security capacity building.
“All international partners should strengthen coordination and form synergy to help the Somali government implement the transition plan, so as to transfer the security tasks of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to the Somali security forces,” he said.
He called on the international community to help improve the federal mechanism and the relationships between the federal government and the governments of federal member states.
