United State Reopens Somalia Embassy

US & Canada News

The United States has reopened its embassy in Somalia nearly 30 years after its closure. A statement from the US embassy on Wednesday said that reopening of the embassy follows last year’s establishment of a permanent diplomatic presence in the capital, Mogadishu.


“Is another step forward in the resumption of regular US -Somalia relations, symbolizing the strengthening of US-Somalia relations and advancement of stability, development, and peace for Somalia, and the region.” It added.

The country has since then been bedevilled by conflict and violence perpetrated by militias since the removal of Siad Barre in 1991.
