UAE Ambassador and Somalia’s Federal Parliament Speaker discuss bilateral relations.

The UAE Ambassador to Somalia, Mohammed Al Hammadi, and Somalia’s Federal Parliament Speaker, Mohammed Osman Jawari, recently met to discuss bilateral relations between the UAE and Somalia and ways of developing them in various fields.

During the meeting, the UAE Ambassador conveyed to the Somali official the condolences of the UAE leadership, its government and people, on the recent terrorist bombings in Mogadishu which killed and injured hundreds of innocent civilians.

Last week, the UAE announced it is to cover the medical costs of 100 wounded victims of the terror attack. It has also urgently begun providing hospitals in Mogadishu with large quantities of medicines and medical supplies to strengthen their healthcare capacity.

The Emirates Red Crescent also announced it is to offer around 300 children, who were orphaned as a result of the attacks, and their families, a six-month comprehensive care package which will cover all costs of living.

Jawari expressed his thanks and appreciation to the UAE for its humanitarian initiatives following the attacks, pointing out that the UAE’s charitable stance at this critical time reflects its generosity towards supporting and assisting the Somali people.
