Somali leaders agree on raft of measures to boost security

Somali leaders have reached consensus on a wide range of issues after a two-day meeting in the country’s southwestern city of Baidoa.

At the end of the meeting, attended among others by President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo and Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheire and regional leaders, a final communique was issued touching on a number of topics, including security and resource-sharing.

The leaders agreed on the need to launch new security operations to open the key Mogadishu-Baidoa road to facilitate movement of people and goods.

The statement also said there would be one person one vote in the 2020 national elections.

The federal government and the country’s regional administrations also agreed on the harmonisation of the nation’s tax systems and sharing of natural resources equitably.

The Baidoa meeting, dubbed the National Security Conference, also focused on the country’s transition from many years of internal conflict.
