In partnership, we will bring Somali refugees home

What you need to know:

  • Regardless of recent tension invoked by irresponsible media reports, it was clear from all partners that there was a determination to, YES, return Somali refugees home but to do it in a way that is dignified, orderly and in line with all international laws and existing agreements.
  • Our two nations' ties are historic and I am certain that in close partnership and with continued cooperation, we will overcome the common challenges of regional and international insecurity and capitalise on the opportunities for trade and commerce available to us.
  • A strengthening Somali government and institutions are working with partners, including the Kenyan government, to prepare the ground for the return of our citizens by defeating the last pockets of opportunistic terrorism and creating opportunities at home.

My first visit to the Dadaab refugee camp as part of Somalia President His Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud's delegation this week truly moved me.
