Somalia and Kenya officials meet for the first time since ICJ ruling

Somalia's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud met with Kenya's Ambassador to Somalia Lucas Tumbo in Mogadishu on Monday for the first time since the ICJ rejected Kenya's case in the maritime dispute.

 

"The Foreign Ministers of Somalia and Kenya agreed, in their meeting in Mogadishu, to expedite the third session of the Joint Committee to move forward in areas of common interest, including trade, investment, security, defense, agriculture, tourism, and people-to-people relations."

Diplomatic relations between the two east Africa neighbours have been icy in recent years. A large part of that animosity was centred around a maritime dispute which wassettledby the UN's highest court last month. Somalia welcomed the ruling, with President Farmajocalling onKenya to accept the ICJ's verdict. Kenya's Uhuru Kenyatta publicly said that his governmentrejectedthe ruling and would not 'cede an inch' of Kenyan territory.
