The President of Somalia visited Kenya this week, where he signed an agreement between the two countries which is part of the trade and security cooperation.

The visit to Addis Ababa is particularly noteworthy, and it is the first time that there will be direct talks between President Hassan and Prime minister Abiy Ahmed, whose administration in Ethiopia had close relations with the former government of Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.

According to sources close to President Hassan, his trip to Ethiopia has been delayed. Villa Somalia and the Government of Ethiopia have not yet issued an official statement about the delay in the President’s visit to Addis Ababa.

The Cabinet of Ministers of Somalia has not yet been announced. The talks between the allies of President Hassan and the newly appointed Prime Minister Hamza are still ongoing.
