MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Arab Parliament on Sunday called for a de-escalation of tensions between Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and his Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble, and urged parties involved in the current standoff in the Horn of Africa nation to resort to dialogue to “achieve national consensus”.
In a statement, it raised fear that if Somalia’s political stakeholders fail to end their differences, the country may return to a civil war that could lead to reversal of hard-won achievements.
“The Arab Parliament stressed that the continuation of the state of bickering and escalation will not be in the interest of any party, calling on all parties to uphold the higher interest of the country, stressing that the current priority must be directed towards the concerted efforts of all national parties in order to complete the general elections,” Arab Parliament said.
“The Arab Parliament expressed its full readiness to support any steps that would achieve national consensus in Somalia, lead to strengthening internal security and stability, and meet the Somali people’s aspirations for development and a dignified life.”
