Somalia President arrives in Puntland
Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud and a delegation of ministers arrived on Tuesday in Garowe, the capital of Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland.
According to officials, the President is visiting the region to attend a two-day conference between the regional administrations and the federal government on implementation of 2016 visions.
The conference, which its first phase was held in Mogadishu in February is likely to be attended by the heads of Jubaland and Southwest administrations.
Puntland President Abdiweli Mohamed Ali and cabinet members received the President in Garowe airport as security was beefed up.
President Mohamoud’s visit to Puntland – his second since elected in September 2012- comes at a crucial moment as formation of a new federal state in the Central region is under progress. Puntland has strongly condemned the formation of the state because it says parts of its territories are included.
