NEW YORK, 18th April, 2017 (WAM) -- The United Nations and other members of the international community have commended Somalia’s Federal Government and the Federal Member States for agreeing to form a National Security Council, as well as decisions taken on priorities such as fighting corruption and drought response.

"This agreement marks a major milestone for Somalia. It is a cornerstone of the federal state building process and is a basis upon which strengthened security can be built," said Michael Keating, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Somalia, referring to the creation of a National Security Council.

Mr. Keating, who is also the head of the UN political mission in Somalia (UNSOM), said that the international community is committed to supporting the Government’s priorities.
