Monday March 11, 2019

Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khayre has today arrived in Kismayo to diffuse tension between Federal government and the regional state.

The delegation of the prime minister was welcomed by the leader of Jubbaland state, Ahmed Mohamed Madobe and officials from his administration at the airport.

Prime Minister Kheire will hold talks with Jubbaland leader on restoration of cooperation between the federal government and the regional state in southern Somalia.

According to sources privy to development, PM Kheire is expected to address to concerns of Jubbland state which seized the cooperation with federal government late last year.

Last September, Jubbaland state accused the Mogadishu-based government of interfering in the affairs of the member states.

The state also expressed grievances on insecurity, the sharing of natural resources.

The sources say the two leaders will also address the upcoming Jubbaland presidential elections slated for August this year.
