German Ambassador meets Foreign Minister of Somalia

The German Ambassador to Somalia, Andreas Peschke, used the opportunity of the visit of H.E. Abdirahman Duale Beileh, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Federal Republic of Somalia, to Nairobi to have a first exchange of views on the perspectives of German Development Cooperation with Somalia.

Ambassador Peschke highlighted that the German Government committed itself to the New Deal process as well as to the Somali Compact and used the Brussels Conference last year to pledge an amount of up to 95 million Euros for the support of state- and peace-building measures by bilateral development cooperation with a focus on economic foundations. Moreover, he emphasised the overall need for further security and stabilisation measures as a precondition for any long-term engagement..

German AMBASSADOR Andreas Peschke said after the meeting: “Germany is firmly committed to the stabilisation and reconstruction of Somalia. We support the Government in Mogadishu and the mission of the African Union AMISOM in their enormous efforts to restore peace and stability. It is important to show to the Somali population that there is a dividend of peace. We will continue the dialogue with the Somali Government and the international partners on how we can help.”
